The future of the James River Park System

December 16, 2011 9:31am

In my column in the Sports section of today’s Times-Dispatch, I make the argument that the city’s handling of Ralph White’s retirement — who they hire and under what circumstances — will go a long way toward determining the value they place on the James River and its associated parks. And those who care about the river — which should be all of us — have a role to play in making sure the city understands what’s at stake.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
