Canby Vibe: Episode 11
Civic responsibility and the Blazers win at Denver bookended the 11th episode of the Canby Vibe, a podcast from the Canby Herald.
Assistant Editor Kristen Wohlers opened the proceedings with a look at the school board candidates for Canby that are on the ballot that was mailed out this week. What ensued was not only a spirited talk about how vital the school board is, but how important it is that Canby voters are engaged and return their ballots for an election cycle that generally flies under the radar.
En route to their Trailblazer fandom, Wohlers, Carol Rosen, Tanner Russ, and editor John Baker discussed the various ins and outs of a ballot proposal that's being prepared for 2020 that targets a sales tax in Oregon, Kristen's excitement at finding a tasty and fulfilling wine at Costco, and Tanner's homegrown joke that left staff feeling empowered and tangent-loving.
Fortunately, Tanner rallied with a look at the Canby High girls' tennis team's success and a focus on a Canby High distance runner that is having quite the season.
Along the way, Kristen and the staff celebrated the Canby High choir's fifth-place state finish, as well as the official word that a wine and sandwich establishment will take up residence at the Dahlia.
After that, it was Blazers, Blazers and just a little more Blazers. The Herald staff is fully on the Blazer wagon train as the playoffs ramp up….well, almost all of the staff. Carol insists on clinging to her Bay Area roots with a lusty enjoyment of the Golden State Warriors. She was flogged for her effrontery.
