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 the next day's paper.
What we're working on: Early this morning in Lake of the Pines, a man allegedly stabbed another man on Lake Shore North who died from his wounds. The alleged suspect then led authorities on a high-speed chase that ended in Sacramento County. Reporter Gus Thomson will have more on this story here and in tomorrow's edition.
Reporter Sara Seyydin is following up on our small story in today's paper about Assemblywoman Beth Gaines' new measures to help business owners get in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements and help avoid frivolous lawsuits.
What you're talking about: In the Opinion section, two topics are getting the discussion going, oil prices and the American River Canyon. Read these letters "Greed reigns supreme over oil prices" and "Auburn canyon no wilderness" and weigh in.
