Photo in Herald has had many dates
To the editor:
On page A3 of the June 10 edition of the Canby Herald is a photograph of the Twenty Millionth Ford. This car is a 1931 Model A Ford Slant Windshield Town Sedan and came through Canby on a promotional tour in the summer of 1931.
The caption in the picture states that it was at the 1927 county fair. This is obviously impossible. I have seen this same picture in the Canby Herald numerous times over the years with various dates assigned to it other than 1931. It also is in the book about the history of the town of Canby for sale around town, but also with the wrong date on the caption.
It is a great photo of a very memorable event, it deserves to be captioned and used correctly.
For anyone interested in the promotional tour, there is considerable information available with a simple internet search of "Twenty Millionth Ford."
Story may have had 'opinion' in it
To the editor:
I just finished reading the June 10 article written by Kristen Wohler concerning the number of cases of COVID-19 in Molalla. The reporter does a good job of listing the total number of COVID cases in various cities like Canby, Hubbard, Woodburn and Molalla, as well as the number of cases per population of 10,000 for the individual cities.
However, I was concerned about the reporter's comment, "Molalla's infection rate may be due to a high number of residents who commute to Portland. …"
The reporter did not say where she got this information and gave no credit to anyone for coming to that conclusion.
She did not state how many Molalla residents commute to Portland, nor did she give any statistics about Portland commuters from Canby, Hubbard, Woodburn or other cities listed in the article.
Additionally, no data was given for the number of commuters per 10,000 population from these other cities to Portland, which was a method used to add credibility to the number of cases of COVID in the cities.
Without this additional data, I can only assume that the reporter was expressing an opinion when stating, " Molalla's infection rate may be due to a high number of residents who commute to Portland. …", an opinion which could be better served in the "Opinion" page.
