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: In the wake of the rollover accident that involved eight Placer High School students, the topic of closing the Orange Street campus at lunchtime has been brought up. Reporter Amber Marra is looking into the Placer policy for open campus and researching what other high schools in the district are doing.

In our Food & Wine section this week reporter Paul Cambra has a feature on Auburn’s Fall TomatoFest, which coincides with the Auburn Home Show. 

Reporter Gus Thomson is sitting in on Tuesday’s Placer County Board of Supervisors meeting and will have coverage on items discussed on the agenda.

In Sports Wednesday Foresthill High’s Emily Perez wanted to play as many sports as she could in her senior year. So she’s playing football with the boys. Journal Sports Editor Matthew Kimel will have a profile on Perez’s quest.

What you’re talking about: Several of our stories from our Tuesday edition have readers sharing their thoughts on the topics. Read our pieces on the Auburn City Council decision on Food trucks; a deputy shooting a charging suspect in Colfax and political signs being stolen in Newcastle and weigh in.
