Today's three stories of "things which went right" (as opposed to going wrong) from the mainstream media.

CBH predicts possible 16 million tonne crop for WA as deliveries slow by Tara de Landgrafft (WA Country Hour, ABC Western Australia)

A story analysing the grain crop from Western Australia, and reflecting on the highlights and lowlights of this years' harvest according to the CBH (Cooperative Bulk Handling) co-operative.

How to bin Christmas responsibly: A guide to what you can and can't recycle by Emma Wynne (720 ABC Perth, ABC Western Australia)

An article aimed at Australians, about what can and can't be safely dumped into the recycling bins this Christmas.

Australian kids draw 'welcome' artworks for newly-arrived migrants and refugees by ABC Australia.

"The ABC's television news program, Behind the News (BtN)— in conjunction with non-partisan not-for-profit group Welcome to Australia — invited kids in September to send in original artwork that illustrates what people loved most about living in this country." They received over 12,000 hand-drawn colour pictures from Australian kids, with a message of "welcome".

So, there's my three for the day. As always, if you have any stories about "what went right" which have popped up on your news feed, drop them in the comments.
