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 Thursday edition.

What we're working on: As students get ready to head back to school, retailer Target is making sure some local kids are taken care of. Reporter Amber Marra and photographer Kim Palaferri were at the retailer on Highway 49 Wednesday where Target gave 20 children $80 gift cards to buy back-to-school supplies.

Reporter Sara Seyydin is following up on the Placer County Board of Supervisors meeting from Tuesday, where the issue of the regional wastewater project was discussed. Sara will have a story on where the proposed project stands.
The possible construction of a recreational vehicle park on the property that currently is the site of Dingus McGee's restaurant has generated interest. Sara will have a story on the proposed park, which goes before the Placer County Planning Commission Thursday.
