The Canby Herald staff talks football, First Thursday, a potential school bond and more

PMG FILE PHOTO: KRISTEN WOHLERS - Canby Herald staff records their last episode of the Vibe from their former location in downtown Canby. The Vibe will continue from the Herald's new location at 911 SW 4th Ave.

The 29th incarnation of The Vibe was bittersweet for the Herald staff as it was our last episode recorded in our old downtown office. From now on, we'll be recording from our new space at 911 SW 4th Ave. in the former Dave's Prescription building.

The whole editorial staff was present for our downtown-office farewell episode, including Editor John Baker, Assistant Editor Kristen Wohlers, Reporter Carol Rosen and Sports Reporter Derek Wiley.

Derek kicked us off with a recap of Canby High School Football's season opener versus Lincoln. Canby came up short, but fought hard to the end. Kristen, who watched the game from the grandstands, piped in to give a sense for the vibe among the crowd.

From there, Carol talked First Thursday, when Matt Morrissey offered samples of some pastrami that is soon to debut at Wayward Sandwiches in the Dahlia building. The staff then flew way off track in a discussion about wine and other things.

Kristen shared briefly about the potential for the school district to put a bond on the May 2020 or November 2020 ballot. Planning is in the early stages and nothing has been decided yet.

Carol gave us the rundown of the second annual Scarecrow Contest, and that was that.
