This week's edition of the Canby Vibe podcast had newly-selected Canby City Councilor Trvgye Berge in the broadcast center to talk about his new role and what he's interested in. Berge's early focus, he said, would be on listening to community concerns and ideas, as well as learning what his role will be and how he can help the team, and Canby, moving forward.
When he was interviewed, Berge noted his interest in the Wayside Project that was part of the master plan back in 2003-04. The topic spurred more conversation about what could or could not be done with that property – 100 acres that butts up against the Willamette River. While John envisioned a rustic wooden fishing lodge with rooms to rent, a fire pit to cook the day's catch and other amenities, the rest of the group offered their own, more modest proposals.
Of course, no Canby Vibe podcast is complete without Assistant Editor Kristen Wohlers offering her thoughts on wine consumption during the week; however, Wohlers pulled a shocker when she admitted to not having any wine during the week, though she had enjoyed a tasty mojito next door at the Backstop Bar & Grill. Editor John Baker, emboldened by Wohlers's confession, admitted to trying an apricot cider that he found in the "singles" aisle of the local store. What ensued was a spirited conversation between everyone about just exactly what an apricot is and how it might taste. There were several in the "no" apricot category.
Along the way, Sports Editor Derek Wiley talked about some interesting items going on around the area, including a Canby man who scored a hole-in-one in Florence, and the successes of the Canby Gator swim club.
Also on the docket was the Sugarlump project that has an Aurora tie-in, a Buffalo Bill relation in the Aurora area, and some intriguing discussions about the upcoming Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo and how John has been hip-deep in creating the annual fair guide this week.
