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 Friday edition.

What we’re working on:  Enjoy the break from the wet weather right now because more is on the way, starting this evening. Reporter Gus Thomson will be keeping an eye on the next front coming in and will have updates as conditions change. In his Media Life column, Gus highlights Mark Twain’s visit to Placer County and Colfax’s namesake is on the big screen.

With Auburn’s Festival of Lights parade being postponed until Dec. 8, Reporter Jon Schultz is checking in with organizers to see if there are any changes in regard to the route and other specifics. Jon will also have a story on a local business that was partially operating as a marijuana dispensary that is now suing the City of Auburn for revoking its business license.

In sports, two Placer midget football players, as well as a handful from Colfax, will compete in the Youth Shrine Bowl in Florida Sunday. Sports Editor Matthew Kimel will have a story on the Orlando game that pits top eighth-graders from the Golden State versus top players from the Sunshine State.  

What you’re talking about: Our story on the closure of the Book Haven store in Auburn and the subsequent rise of e-readers has online users commenting today.
