This week's topics include Columbia Distributing, fireworks at football games, Transgender Day of Visibility, Canby's 150th birthday and the winter musical

In this week's episode of the Canby Vibe podcast, Canby Herald staffers John Baker, Kristen Wohlers, Carol Rosen and Derek Wiley discuss some interesting topics and don't hold back with some thoughts on a couple of them.

Rosen got things started with a quick overview of Canby's Strategic Investment Zone and how it has gotten a little bit of shake-up recently with some development. She also offered a few tidbits from the previous night's city council meeting, including another plea to the council to help mitigate the fireworks that go on during Canby High School football games in the fall. That topic provided plenty of fodder for the staff to talk about and presented some interesting and diverse opinions about the issue.

Also at issue was the repeated request for a city proclamation for International Transgender Day of Visibility on March 31. Once again, the Herald staff offered their opinions about the proclamation, something the mayor chose not to do a year ago. And as it turns out, we are here again with another request.

Also on tap for this episode was the Canby Sesquicentennial kickoff event on Wednesday, which was well-attended and signaled the start of Canby's 150th birthday celebration that will extend throughout the year. Then Wohlers shared a bit about a spaghetti feed and winter musical preview held at the high school.
