Canby Vibe: Episode 24
The revelation that there something called a margarita wine was just one of the many interesting items that spilled out during this week's Canby Vibe podcast.
Assistant Editor Kristen Wohlers disclosed this hard truth to the rest of the staff during the broadcast, immediately instigating a discussion about margarita sweetness – are they or aren't they? While that discussion gained steam, Editor John Baker was simply trying to wrap his head around two things – wine and margaritas – that seemed diametrically opposed. In the end, Kristen offered to bring a bottle in for John's taste. Carol will be limited to one jigger-full as there's worry about her capacity.
And with that, the Canby Vibe podcast was off and rolling, going over some of the details of the building sale and to whom. The possibility of a new bar/brewery as part of the Backstop Bar & Grill was, to a person, a positive development, as was the revelation that the Herald has leased the old Dave's Pharmacy space. Move-in and other parts of the plan are still to be confirmed.
Sports King Derek Wiley discussed a former Canby baseball player's rise on the Oregon baseball team, while Carol offered a council tidbit from the night before – the splash pad at Maple Street Park has been given the go-ahead. It will have a few other amenities and include a flower-themed spritz action that reflects Canby as the Garden Spot. The tennis courts will be ripped up and new ones built in another location in the park, as well as an increase in parking.
Kristen offered some thoughts about a STEAM program she got a chance to experience at Eccles Elementary, something that the rest of the staff found interesting and exciting. Getting young kids excited about science and math is a good way, they noted, to bridge the gap that has grown between American youth and some other parts of the world. Kristen also gave everyone a look into what it means to be a Good Samaritan in Canby and why that's still something we're all capable of doing.
