Another three stories from my mainstream news feeds about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

Farmers and pastoralists celebrate as Gascoyne River reaches Carnarvon by Matt Brann (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

The Gascoyne River, the longest in WA, doesn't always flow all the way to the coast. This year, it is, and farmers in Carnarvon are hoping it'll flow for long enough to refresh aquifers in the region.

Indonesia 'deradicalising' 75 people deported from Turkey over Islamic State links by Adam Harvey (ABC Indonesia correspondent)

A group of 75 people who were deported from Turkey for attempting to join the Islamic State group are currently being counselled and helped with the process of re-integration into their communities by the Indonesian government.

SA merit award students include Blessing Nyoni, who plans to become a doctor by Tom Fedorowytsch (ABC South Australia)

Among the recipients of the SA Merit Award (awarded to the highest achievers in the SA Certificate of Education) is Blessing Nyoni, an immigrant from Zimbabwe.

So there's my three for the day. If you've found any stories from the mainstream media about "what went right" in your newsfeed, why not share them in the comments?
