Welcome to the Auburn Journal’s “Noon Hour Update,” where we’ll present you with stories and updates on what’s going on in the news and what we’re working on for our Tuesday edition.

What we’re working on:  With the final county vote total for the presidential election released Thanksgiving week, the Auburn City Council race has finally been decided. Reporter Jon Schultz is working on a story talking to the parties involved in the city council race and asking for their reactions from this close election.

Bike safety is the focus of one of Reporter Gus Thomson’s stories as he sits down with a local resident who suffered a serious bike crash earlier this year in the canyon, which resulted in him being air-lifted out.

Journal correspondent Megan Moore is working on a preview of Auburn’s Festival of Lights parade, which has been rescheduled due to expected wet weather this week.

What you’re talking about: Readers have been weighing in with their comments on several stories from over the weekend. Some of those pieces include our story on charitable giving this time of year, and another is our piece on the case between the City of Auburn and the Auburn Police Officers Association. Read these stories and more and share your thoughts.
