Reporter Jon Schultz is following up on a recent court decision to give local governments control over allowing medical marijuana dispensaries.

There are some budding journalists in the Lake of the Pines area, and they’ve been honored for their work. Reporter Andrew Westrope has a story on Bear River High School’s student newspaper winning an award for their coverage.
