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 Sunday print and online editions.

What we’re working on:  With the Super Bowl just a couple days away, we’ve been hearing from many San Francisco 49ers fans, one in particular is quite proud of the red and gold. Reporter Gus Thomson caught up with this fan and saw their memorabilia collection. Gus will also have a story on the Auburn Recreation District’s work on a land transfer deal in North Auburn.

How are things going since the Auburn City Council changed its email policy? Reporter Jon Schultz has a piece answering that question in regard to the public being able to access the emails and what’s been discussed.

Reporter Andrew Westrope is working on a story about the Higgins Fire Protection District and its fundraising efforts to help fund the department.

In Sports, look for coverage of the Placer High School boys basketball game against Colfax and read more previews for Sunday’s big game between the 49ers and Baltimore Ravens.

What you’re talking about: Some of our stories getting online comments Friday include our story on declining enrollment and Gus’ Media Life column talking about food trucks and the Andrews Sisters. Read these stories and more and share your thoughts.
