A BAD day got a whole lot better for Lisa Ashman when Topics gave her a buzz yesterday afternoon.
The Wangi Wangi local had already gone through a medical visit when she found her dog, Jaws, unwell at home and had to rush him to the vet.
Yet her fortunes improved dramatically when she found out she had won a new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) after entering the Newcastle Herald’s My Hunter My Way competition. In celebration of the Herald’s release of its app for Androids, users were asked to send in their favourite photo of the Hunter.
Ms Ashman’s shot of Wangi Wangi just as the sun was rising convinced judges to pick her photo from hundreds of entries.
‘‘It was taken at Wangi Wangi on my phone. I walk past there every morning,’’ she said. ‘‘I am just so excited; this has made my day.’’
