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 Wednesday edition.

What we’re working on:  An effort is being made to record the number of homeless currently living in Placer County. Reporter Gus Thomson is following the process and will have a story on the count.

An anonymous letter alleging a secret land deal with the developer of the Baltimore Ravine project and the United Auburn Indian Community was brought up at Monday night’s Auburn City Council meeting. Reporter Jon Schultz is looking further into the claim and getting more reaction to the letter.

We’re counting down to Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVII between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. Reporter Andrew Westrope is checking in with locals to see what they’re doing for the big game.

What you’re talking about: Several Letters to the Editor and stories have online readers commenting on Tuesday. Read our story on the United Auburn Indian Community being accused of a secret land deal, and a letter on how citizens stood up to the government over gun control.
