-A +A

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 Thursday edition.

What we’re working on: With the Gold Country Fair ready to open on Thursday, Journal Features Editor Krissi Khokhobashvili will have a preview on the culinary delights at the fair.

Reporter Gus Thomson will have a story on the resignation of former Auburn Mayor Bob Snyder from the Planning Commission.

We’re focusing on how declining enrollment in local schools and colleges the last couple of years has taken a toll on these institutions’ bottom lines. Reporter Amber Marra has been looking into the numbers of some Auburn schools and Sierra College and is working on a piece about those impacts.
