Another three articles from the mainstream media about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

Western Australia introduces new border controls for managing bovine Johne's disease in cattle by Matt Brann (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

Western Australia has introduced border controls to protect cattle from Bovine Johne's Disease, a condition which is capable of killing cattle, and leads to a loss of saleable condition prior to death.

St John rewards 'heroes' for courage, skill and exceptional judgement in emergencies by Eliza Laschon (ABC Western Australia)

A group of 17 Western Australians have been recognised by St John Ambulance WA for their "exceptional judgement and skill to deliver care.. in a medical emergency", including a crew of eight who worked on a smash involving an ambulance on Mundijong Road last year.

Hunt for a safe haven for world's rarest marsupial continues by Lisa Morrison and Andrew Collins (ABC Great Southern, Western Australia)

Locations are being sought for rehousing colonies of Gilbert's Potoroo, the world's rarest marsupial. The potoroo had been believed extinct, but a small colony was discovered near Albany in 1994. However, bush fires in the area in 2015 mean the Albany colony is struggling, and new locations for colonies are being sought.

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