Hey — after four months of this, couldn't we all use a chance to relax? Tickets: https://www.pioneerchapel.net/shows After the Break: While the Clackamas County Fair, sadly, is canceled, at least one traditional offering will be back on the menu later this summer.

Like, very different. Like football-without-footballs different. But to district Athletic Director Ben Winegar, it's still worth it, because sports "is something that really brings everyone together, at a time when we are so isolated and apart."  After the Break: Canby High School football coach Jimmy Joyce returns to the Canby Now Podcast to talk about his week back in the sun.

Canby Conversation: Canby High School grad Tucker Hunter has seen more than his fair share of success in the world of competitive cheer, but his career was raised to new heights — pun, as always, intended — with a dazzling debut on America’s Got Talent last week that had celebrity judges Sofia Vergara, Eric Stonestreet, Howie Mandel and even Simon Cowell, well, cheering.

Canby Conversation: With zoos and most other diversions closed, and with the pumpkin patch and Christmas tree season looking quite uncertain, Frog Pond Farm in Wilsonville decided to try a bold idea one weekend: an in-car safari.

Owner Justin Timm tells us the story. Links: Frog Pond Farm on Facebook After the Break: A man was arrested at a Canby gas station last month for trying to get into other people's cars.

A Covid-19 outbreak at a Canby senior care climbs to 34 confirmed cases and is now one of the largest in the state. The mayor of Oregon City gets rebuked for his comments about systemic racism in policing.

After the Break: On Canby Then this week, we revisit one of the strangest and most colorful episodes of Canby’s history: the marriage of local schoolteacher Rosamund Shaw to her 16-year-old student Clifford LeRoy Samuelson in 1924. Rosamund was about 10 years older, which, we guess, makes her the original Canby cougar.

After the Break: Today, Canby's modern pump system generates more than 8 million gallons of water per day — and more than 20 million complaints (during the summer months anyway).

On the bright side, our old library might be turned into a bar and arcade. Canby Conversation: On Feb. 26, the Canby School Board voted to place a 20-year, $75 million bond issue on the ballot for the May primary. Two days later, Oregon’s first case of the novel coronavirus was confirmed, and the state has never been the same. On the Canby Conversation today, an edited version of a local media availability with board member Sara Magenheimer, discussing what has changed with regard to the bond, and why it still matters.

The Joint Emergency Board passes a $32 million coronavirus relief package aimed at disadvantaged renters, workers and small businesses.

Today, we host a far-ranging discussion on this topic between the mayors of two neighboring communities, Canby and Oregon City.

Canby Conversation: For one crazy day each week, Chapala Express makes enough tacos to feed a small army. Instead, they feed Canby. It's known as Taco Tuesday, and on today's episode, owner Carmen Velasquez tells us how it happens. (Editor's note: This interview was recorded at Chapala Express a few weeks ago, when Chapala was still open for sit-in dining, and life was a little less crazy.)
