inside_firewall and local_domain

I'll just bet this is a common question, but I have had no
luck in any of the FAQ's etc, so ...

I have an environment with some machines on the inside
of our firewall and some on the outside. As the machines
on the outside are all sorts of IP's and names, I chose
to use the inside_firewall directive, and just negated
out those that were external. This works fine.

However, *all* requests go to the parent cache. So, I use
the local_domain directive to get squid to go direct to the
offices nearby (each of which is domained).

But, all requests are still sent to the first parent!

I am sure this is simple, but I cannot figure it.

To summarise:

  . I need to use a proxy server to get outside the firewall
    to both my own systems and the rest of the world
  . I am happy to use the parent cache to access most other
    internal sites, but ...
  . I want to go direct to a number of local offices
