-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: A Rocklin woman, who was last seen at her place of business in Auburn, has been reported missing since Aug. 9. Reporter Gus Thomson is working on a story about where the 35-year-old woman worked, where the investigation stands and gauges community reaction.

Gus will also look into concerns residents of a mobile home park have about possible changes to their living situation.

At Sierra College, making the transfer to college coursework and life for foster students is a priority of the administration. Reporter Amber Marra looks into programs designed to make this transition a positive and successful one. 

Amber is continuing her Meet the Principal series with another administrator profile.

Favorable to food trucks?: Take our online poll on the bottom half of our homepage next to sports asking if food trucks are a good addition to the Auburn business community.

What you’re talking about: Our story on the Placer County Board of Supervisors approving a 2 percent pay increase for 1,700 public employees has readers telling us what they think about the idea. Among our Letters to the Editor, some of our most read and commented letters so far contain criticism of Congressman Tom McClintock and the Romney/Ryan Republican presidential ticket. Read these letters and stories and more and weigh in.
