Canby Vibe: Episode 16
Canby Herald Editor John Baker got the chance to wax eloquent about his love of the Oregon Renaissance Faire during this week's episode of the Canby Vibe podcast.
Not only will he be attending the faire, which opens for its two-weekend run this weekend at the Clackamas County Event Center, but suggested that he'd be taking along his Klingon flagon to fill with ale and cider. While he was mercilessly mocked by the rest of the Herald staff, Baker stood firm as his joy for the faire poured forth.
There was a lot to digest in this episode, notably some resignations within the Canby city administration and City Council, as well as an update on the city administrator search. And while that was no doubt fun for Carol Rosen and Kristen Wohlers, there was some sad news as well.
Sports reporter Tanner Russ announced that he will be leaving the Herald on June 20 as he embarks on the next phase of his career – going back to school at the University of Syracuse. Yes, the Ginger is going to the Orange as he seeks a master's degree in magazine, newspaper and online publishing, focusing on sports. A minimum of group blubbing occurred as Russ talked about his time as the sports guru at the Herald, as well as for the Wilsonville Spokesman and Molalla Pioneer.
Fortunately, the group had some fun memories of Tanner's time in the office, and offered up some stories of their own college and high school graduations as Canby High gets ready to graduate its class of 2019.
