Blotting out respect

Each week I read the Auburn Reporter and have become more disappointed with one specific aspect of it. The disrespect toward our police department in the police blotter section is shameful.

‘Kudos’ to volunteers

A few Saturdays ago, I was out walking in my neighborhood and saw a bunch of teenagers unloading food goods from the backs of trucks, cars, and vans.

Girl Scouts’ cookie operation a big hit

Once again, the citizens of Auburn have stepped up to help the Girl Scouts show our military how much we care for them. Auburn Girl Scout troops surpassed last year’s total and sold nearly 4,000 boxes of cookies to be donated to our U.S. soldiers stationed around the globe.
