Thomson's column will be missed

August 18, 2011

Although I look forward to the upcoming calendar of outdoors and recreation events, I will miss Candus Thomson's "Outdoors Girl" column, whose final publish date was Sunday, Aug. 14.

In a sports page full of male writers covering male-dominated team sports, Outdoors Girl gave me the breath of fresh air I need as an active woman who would rather be in the woods than in the gym.

I only hope that the end of this column will not mean the end of coverage of newsworthy feats of athleticism which convey a reverence for the natural world and don't require a uniform, a mown field and a ball of some sort.
