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: Reporter Gus Thomson is at the Placer County Board of Supervisors meeting today. One topic of discussion is the funding of the county libraries with the decrease in tax revenue.

Reporter Sara Seyydin will be writing about the arrival of German exchange students who are attending their first day of classes today at Placer High School.
Sara will also be working on a couple other stories with a military feel. She'll be interviewing a group of men who were stationed together in the Navy in the 1960s, and they've reunited recently for the first time.
Another story is about Ted Robinson, who will be speaking about former President John F. Kennedy during World War II, as the two spent time together. He will be sharing his memories with the Auburn Host Lions.

Journal Features Editor Krissi Khokhobashvili examines local authors Joanne Neft and Laura Kenny's new cookbook, "The Art of Real Food." Krissi will highlight some of the recipes and let fans know of upcoming book signings in Wednesday's Food&Wine.
