Look for clearing skies by Wednesday and warmer temperatures.

What we're working on: On the eve of the June 5 primary election our staff is busy putting together coverage for tomorrow's elections. Reporter Sara Seyydin will have a story on Measure A, the Auburn charter city initiative, finding out what proponents and opponents are doing to get the vote out.
Sara will also be in Rocklin today at Sierra College profiling the institution's decision to change its food vendor and asking students what they think of the move.

After lengthy delays, Brian Jagger, the former campaign aide that pled guilty to wire fraud for taking $24,000 from three Placer County campaigns faced sentencing today. Reporter Gus Thomson will have a report from Sacramento. Get a little more background on the case here.
Gus will also be on the election front previewing candidates who are running for multiple offices on Tuesday.

What you're talking about: In Opinion, stories and Letters to the Editor have received plenty of views and comments from the weekend. Some of our most commented letters include, "Measure sends money to attorneys," and "It's time to stop digging - vote no on A."
The League of Women Voters' breakdown of Measure A also has readers commenting. Read that here.
