One person has died in a vehicle accident on Sierra College Boulevard near Twelve Bridges Drive Wednesday morning. Reporter Gus Thomson is looking into the crash and will have a report.

Thanksgiving is getting closer, and the folks at the Salvation Army are getting ready for their annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner. Reporter Gloria Young has a profile on the dinner and lets you know how you can donate to help fund the dinner.

Placer High School’s varsity boys cross country team won a section title last weekend. They have two weeks to prepare for the state meet in Clovis. Journal Sports Editor Matthew Kimel will have a profile on the team. 

Reporter Mike Ray goes back in history to feature Placer High’s other 10-0 Hillmen football team.
