The Canby Herald staff had plenty to say in this week's edition of the Canby Vibe podcast. Editor John Baker, assistant editor Kristen Wohlers, reporter Carol Rosen, and sports editor Derek Wiley gathered in the Herald's palatial recording studio to talk about some of the events happening this week, most notably the firing of City Administrator Scott McClure.
The staff talked about the dismissal of McClure after about four months on the job and offered their thoughts on what it might mean, and the lack of information that is being released. While legal ramifications are part of the issue, the feeling that it is all transpiring via taxpayer money seems to indicate to the staff that greater transparency in terms of reasons for the firing are warranted. The staff discussed many aspects of the situation and how it may have played out.
While that discussion took some time, it wasn't the only thing the Herald staff had on its collective minds. Carol offered a few thoughts about some things going on at the regular Canby City Council meeting the night before, including a visit from the Canby Transgender Alliance, looking for a proclamation – the same proclamation that Mayor Brian Hodson turned down a year ago.
Additionally, Kristen reminded listeners that the Canby High thespians will be putting on multiple performances of the production, "Little Shop of Horrors" over the next two weekends and encouraged folks to take it in. John noted that "Little Shop" is one of his two favorite productions, standing side-by-side with "Wicked."
