Police need your help: The Auburn Police Department has released more photos and video from the June fuel thefts that took place at the Amtrak train station parking lot on Nevada Street. See the photos and video here.

What we’re working on: With the passage of the Safe Body Art Act, Placer County now has to enact fees and the enforcement of the program locally to help provide safe environments for those seeking body art.

Amber will also bring readers another Meet the Principal feature.

Along with the Safe Body Art Act, there were several other items on the Placer County Board of Supervisors agenda Tuesday. Reporter Gus Thomson is covering those other subjects and will have a story on what was discussed.

In Food & Wine this week, Journal Features editor Krissi Khokhobashvili is profiling the upcoming Taste of Auburn event.

What you’re talking about: Food truck regulations have readers sharing their thoughts today, as does Letters to the Editor about Tevis Cup safety and Chick-fil-A and the right to free speech. Read these stories and letters and more and weigh in on the subjects.
