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 Monday edition.

What we’re working on: Reporter Amber Marra is continuing to look into an agreement that has been reached by the Auburn State Recreation Area and the Climbing Resource Advocates for Greater Sacramento to lift a nine-year ban on rock climbing at the Cave Valley Climbing Area (the “Auburn Quarry”). Amber will see what the next steps are in this process.

Amber will also be introducing another principal in our Tuesday edition for our Meet the Principal series.

Food trucks seem to be popping up everywhere you look these days — and Auburn is no different. Reporter Gus Thomson will have a story on how the city of Auburn is considering a new ordinance on regulating food vending in the city.

What you’re talking about: The story about the Placer County Sheriff’s Office cutting down nearly 17,000 marijuana plants near Colfax has readers weighing in on the matter. Another story that has people sharing their thoughts is our piece on a proposed RV park in the area where Dingus McGee’s restaurant is. The Placer County Water Agency Board of Directors race also has readers commenting. Read these stories and more and share your thoughts.
