I was just reading today’s Auburn Journal (Aug. 2), when I noticed that Gus Thomson had no fewer than six of his articles and two of his photographs on the front page! The topics ranged from gardening to a fire to a motorcycle accident and a pepper sprayer on a bus. I had the pleasure of meeting Gus once — at the Boreal Ski Resort where he was also doing a story. He’s not only a great reporter, but he’s a fine person. He’s been contributing stories to our community for as long as I’ve been living here — 20 years. And I think it’s time to acknowledge him as a local hero.
