Why the negative reactions to the high school's 'Smash the Hate' campaign this week?

It's never what you expect. That's the credo that the Canby Herald staff discussed during this week's edition of the Canby Vibe Podcast.

Assistant Editor Kristen Wohlers discussed the impact that the Smash the Hate event had on her, as well as the shocking responses the story, once posted online, generated. Wohlers, along with Editor John Baker, Reporter Carol Rosen, and Sports Editor Derek Wiley, discussed the importance of the event and took issue with some of the negative responses, and why they might originate. The lively discussion centered on perception versus reality and how some folks seem to favor the former while ignoring the benefits of the latter.

PMG PHOTO: KRISTEN WOHLERS - Canby High School leadership students tagged a PT Cruiser with hateful words like 'negativity,' 'sexism,' and 'homophopia,' and then let the student body smash it.

Also in this episode, the Canby Herald staff offered some thoughts on the annual Kiwanis Toy/Food Drive that is getting ready to kick off in Canby, as well as the importance of volunteers stepping forward to fill empty holes on a number of Canby committees. These committees, staffed by volunteer Canby citizens, offer a grassroots ability to start many important processes or projects for the City of Canby.
