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: A fatal accident took place on Indian Hill Road this morning. Gus Thomson and photographer Michael Kirby were on the scene and we'll have more throughout the day. Here is what we have so far: "Fatal crash reported on Indian Hill Road."
Online security is a hot topic these days. Reporter Sara Seyydin is reporting on a cyber safety class for parents and kids.
Along with that story Sara will also be sitting down with one of our local-area high school newspaper editors and getting perspective from the next generation of journalists.
Gus will also have a piece on how the Discovery Channel's show, "Gold Rush" has spawned a gold rush of its own. Thomson checks in with the Auburn State Recreation Area to see where the hunt for gold is taking place. Thomson will also be doing a story on the upcoming meeting for the proposed south Nevada County senior development, Rincon Del Rio.
What you're talking about: Our story on Measure B ("Voters pass Measure B") is gathering some comments today as well as the Craigslist theft story ("Craigslist ad leads to theft of high-end mountain bike in Auburn"). In our Opinion section, the most read letters so far today are "What is role of state in marriage?" and "Auburn's got talent."
