Canby Vibe: Episode 20
The Canby Vibe podcast hit its 20th episode this week and the staff celebrated by introducing new sports editor Derek Wiley to the microphone. The new sports kingpin offered some thoughts on his background, both professionally and personally as the rest of the staff grilled him with personal questions. In the end, he survived and the podcast continued with its usual array of tangents and overall silliness.
The proceedings opened with Editor John Baker officially putting the word out that the Canby Herald building is up for sale. Dispelling myriad rumors about the paper, John made sure to remind everyone that the paper is not closing down, simply getting ready to move to new digs in Canby.
After that, reporter Carol Rosen offered some insight into the downtown revitalization meeting she had attend that morning. Assistant Editor Kristen Wohlers and Baker offered some thoughts on what the downtown could use or be headed towards in the future. Fortunately, the hard questions the crew was asking and answering was softened by Kristen's weekly discussion of a wine she enjoyed during the week. What ensued was a full-bodied discussion about wines and wine pronunciations that had Carol going full French on the rest of the staff.
From there, the Canby Herald staff discussed this week's Harefest 9 at Pat's Acres, as well as the coming Country Festival next weekend – and who likes to rock and who likes to country on the staff. John, of course, lauded the joys of '80s music and the whole vibe that Harefest presents.
Also on the table was a discussion of the Friends of the Canby Library's Great Patio & Backyard Tour coming up in early August and a celebration of John Tate making it all the way to Jacksonville, Florida with his dog Jax as a fundraiser for K9s for Warriors.
