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 Tuesday edition.

What we’re working on:  A new U.S. Fish and Wildlife office is now open in Auburn. Reporter Gus Thomson will highlight the new facility with a feature story about what it offers the community. Gus will also be previewing an upcoming road dedication ceremony here in Placer County for a former California Highway Patrol officer.

The Auburn City Council takes on the topic of a regional sewer facility at its council meeting Monday night. Reporter Jon Schultz will be on hand for the meeting and will have a piece on the evening’s decisions.

A financial firm has rated the Placer Union High School District’s bonds and given it a “stable” outlook. Reporter Andrew Westrope looks into this report and explains what this means to the public and the district.  

What you’re talking about: Several of our stories from the weekend have readers sharing their thoughts online Monday. Our story on a banned marijuana dispensary petitioning for a rehearing has people talking, as does our piece on how the Placer grad’s cover letter that went viral got him an internship.
