Why Does Cable TV Cost So Much? There’s no denying that TV has gotten more expensive, for both TV providers and their members. But why exactly do costs increase every year? Why do members continuously see their bills go up? There are a number of reasons for the high cost of TV, and we want to make it a little easier to understand. Sports Broadcasting Rights Sports games and shows are some of the most popular programs available, and the network executives know it. The price networks charge to air sports programming has caused basic cable and satellite TV bills to double over the past decade. The NFL alone brings in more than $7 billion for broadcast and cable rights to air their games. Combine that with the MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, college and other sports, and the fees add up quickly. Media Conglomeration Most of the networks you watch are owned by eight corporations who, in turn, control the prices of the channels. To continue increasing their revenue, they require that DirectLink and others carry their less popular networks on specific package tiers as a condition to providing the most popular ones. In addition, they use their size and market power to continually demand higher fees for their programming. If DirectLink does not agree to the new price, they threaten to remove the channel(s) altogether from your TV package until we comply.

Local Station Broadcast Fees Local station Broadcast retransmission fees account for about 26% of the overall cost of a cable bill (Source: Forbes). Like you, we feel the discomfort when local broadcast stations decide to raise their prices. Portland broadcast stations include KATU, KRCW, KOIN, KGW, KPTV, KPDX, and KUPN. Most cable companies and TV service providers, DirectLink included, now list the programming charges from local stations as a separate billing line item so subscribers can be aware of just how much this content costs. The main goal here is transparency. Our Broadcast Programming Fee is a straight pass through cost that represents exactly what we are charged to carry these channels on our service. Unfortunately, local stations choose to increase these rates at high levels each year.

What are we doing to combat the rising costs of TV? DirectLink has developed and introduced EZVideo, an app-based digital TV solution for our members. Unlike traditional cable and satellite TV, EZVideo does not require a special set top box or DVR box with additional rental fees. Plus, HD and DVR fees have been eliminated, along with long-term contracts. This saves the average household $360 per year over traditional TV services. While we have little to no control over the big corporations raising their prices for your favorite shows and movies, we’re finding ways to combat them with innovative new products that reduce or eliminate the extra equipment and upgrade fees for members. Learn more about what DirectLink is doing to keep prices as low as possible for TV subscribers at www.tvonmyside.com/directlink.

As the weather warms up and spring appears, knowing what is happening in your community is important so follow our community events. Culture is important too, and every issue we are lucky enough to have a spotlight on local artists. This month we are focusing on musicians Rebecca and Ray Hardiman. Celebrate Valentine’s Day by cooking a delicious Brown Sugar Garlic Flank Steak. You’ll find the recipe on page 44. As always, you’ll also find lots of great deals for your favorite places around town. We look forward to showing you our next issue in April. Until then, see you around town!

LOS 2 AGAVES MEXICAN RESTAURANT by Tyler Francke Any Canbyites who don’t watch the local food scene closely may be forgiven for not noticing the change. The restaurant anchoring the Canby Station development at the corner of NE 1st and Ivy was, and still is, a Mexican place, and even the names are similar. Formerly, Los Dos Amigos; now: Los Dos Agaves. But if you went inside, you would notice the difference right away. The bar, banquet room and dining area have all gotten makeovers. There’s a salsa bar now, and they make their own fresh tortillas. Of course, the signage is all new. And they also have chic new lights and bar stools — imported from Mexico.

PHOTO BY STACI FARRELL

“Gotta be authentic,” laughed Andrea Gonzalez, server at Los Dos Agaves and daughter of one of the owners, Jose Luis. Luis has worked in the food service arena for many years, as has his business partner Angel Ramirez. This is their first collaboration running a restaurant. “They connected and wanted to open a place, and they picked Canby because it’s growing,” Andrea said. “It’s a small town, but it’s getting bigger and bigger. They saw potential in here.” Only in business since November or so, Los Dos Agaves is already gaining a name for themselves thanks to their authentic food and drinks, quality service and ever-popular happy hour (3 to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, noon to 6 p.m. on the weekends, and then 8 p.m. to close every day). 16 • CANBY COMMUNITY ADVANTAGE MAGAZINE

One of their most popular dishes in Canby is milanesa, a South American variant of an Italian recipe that features tender, thinly sliced filets of meat, breaded and deep fried, which is then served over taquitos. On the bar side, the margarita is king, of course. If you’re feeling adventurous, try their blended mangorita that comes with an upside-down Corona for an added kick. Another house specialty is the cantarito, an iced concoction of tequila and various fruit juices served in a clay pot. PHOTO BY TYLER FRANCKE

Their happy hour specials include $5 plates (with the purchase of a $5 bar drink) such as taquitos, nachos, flautas, street tacos coconut shrimp, and Mexican pizza. “It’s a pretty good deal,” said Andrea. “I don’t think you can find that anywhere else.”

The restaurant hosts live mariachi music every second Sunday of the month from 3 to 5 p.m. and has plans for a new patio being built in time for the summer. Los Dos Agaves is located at 102 N Ivy St. in Canby. 

Their specialties lean toward variety, like their caldo de siete mares (“soup of the seven seas”), a flavorful seafood dish served all over Mexico, Central and South America that features shrimp, crab, mussels, clams, fish and other delicacies; and molcajete Mexicano, a traditional recipe served in a stone dish with steak, chicken, shrimp and cactus. “I always like to get the molcajete,” Andrea said. “I crave everything, so I get that, because it comes with a little bit of everything.”

Odd Moe’s Pizza will be highlighting a variety of causes throughout the coming year which have impacted many people. Colors representing each cause will be added to our products, such as our pizza boxes, our Moe Beer can, and social media platforms. Our goal is to keep the program simple enough that the program will steadily grow and truly promote awareness of each cause.

Odd Moe’s Pizza in Association with Santiam Beverage Presents

“THE PINK CAN”

From Micheal Sublett (Odd Moe’s Owner)–Everyone knows that cancer has impacted many people. However, until it came directly into my life, I didn’t realize how devastating cancer could be. I learned in just a single, simple moment how fragile life can be – that goals and priorities can change instantly. Cancer took two of my best friends; first my sister and recently my mom. The parts of my story you won’t see, like many others, are the moments between the words. For anyone going through this pain – know that you are not carrying this weight alone – reach out, help fight, help support. We can make an impact in awareness, in the cause, and to each other.

Spring is in Sight... Home Goals 2020!

A

s you welcome the New Year, you may be planning a move. We know it can be overwhelming to know how and where to start the process so here are some tips to get your house ready to sell & begin your search for a home to buy....

Photos may look good and house looks like the “right one” on line but when you actually arrive to where the house is, could be a less than ideal “fit”. Most of all, remember, you are not wasting your time or your agent’s time by asking to be shown a property(s). It’s part of our job and part of the process... • If you are getting ready to sell start decluttering your current home. This is also a process that is never too early to start. Evaluate what you need to keep in your house to continue to live while you move through the process of selling then start boxing, donating and selling. Even if you are simply boxing, labeling and storing neatly in the garage, this will help make for a “clean and decluttered” feel to your house. You can work on this process slowly as well leading up to listing your house. When you make a trip to the grocery store, grab 2 or 3 boxes and just start, 1 room at a time.

• Find a lender to pre-qualify you to determine what the price range you can search in. Nothing is more frustrating for a buyer than searching for a house and find the “one” only to be told it is out of your price range.

• Walk the exterior of your home & look for any damage in your siding and step back and look at your roof. Do you see heavy moss, missing shingles, areas where siding is broke, rotting or paint missing? Trim boards on the exterior of the home need to be checked as well. Now is the time to reach out and either work on repairing these items or hiring the work out.

• Make a list of needs & wants in your future home. Make 2 distinguished columns. As you look at more houses you may find a “need” is really just a “want” and vice versa.....this will be a fluid list that changes as you look at more properties and determine what you can truly live with and without. We recommend writing down the “likes” and “dislikes” on the flyers or printouts that you take when you are “shopping” and sit for a few minutes when you return home to re-evaluate your “needs and wants” list based off your comments on the flyers for the homes you viewed for that day. • Check out open houses or make appointments with your realtor. It’s never to early to start looking. The only way to tell truly what you “want or need” is to go look. Remember pictures can be deceiving. Remember to drive by and check neighborhood, locations of things such as schools, stores, etc.. 28 • CANBY COMMUNITY ADVANTAGE MAGAZINE

• Clean your gutters & check rain drains. Next time it rains, grab an umbrella and go outside and walk the house and check


your gutters and rain drains/ downspouts. Are there areas where the water is flowing over the top of your gutters? If so the gutters likely need cleaning. Are they leaking out the bottom? Likely need to be repaired. If water is flowing down the downspout but coming out on the ground, could be a blockage somewhere that will need to be remedied. • Peak in the crawl space to make sure there’s no standing water. Take a flashlight and shine it across the vapor barrier. Look for either water or stains which show that water has been there. While you are peeking, check to see if there is any insulation that has been pulled down and note the cleanliness of your crawl space....if there is trash and debris, 9 times out of 10 it will need to be removed. Also a good time to note the smell under your house. Your nose can often tell you if there are signs of mold/mildew or other adverse conditions going on in your crawl space. • Look in the attic for any signs of mold or moisture.... common problems in the Northwest. You would be surprised how many houses have discoloration on interior roof sheeting or presence of what appears to be some type of mold or mildew. If you see

something, don’t panic...many times these are easy and not too costly to remediate. While you are up there...check to see if any bathroom venting has become disconnected or any pipes that exit roof (venting) have any water stains or rotting of the sheeting around them. Again, take a moment to pay attention to the smell...the nose knows... • Check smoke alarms and CO2 detectors....these are a must. If they are outdated, not working or need new batteries they need to be addressed. • Groom the yard & clear out any debris. Make a quick trip to the dump. Many times yard debris is able to be disposed of for little to no cost. Tackling these items over a period of time helps offset the financial burden of repairs and getting your house “list ready” rather than waiting until you’re down to the wire and need everything done at once in order to get your house listed or sold. It’s ideal to address any issues you may find before listing your current home. Give us a call if you need guidance or suggestions with any of these items. We are here to help!

Senior Living at

Hope Village by Tyler Francke Not only was Bob Kauffman instrumental to helping fulfill the vision of the Hope Village senior living community, he also has the distinction of being one of the first guys to ever move in. Hey — they don’t call him Bob “Hope” for nothing. Hope Village is the sprawling retirement community that helps anchor the south side of Canby. They are a large and active bunch, with a community garden and many other clubs and activities that meet regularly. Most of its residents find their way across the street to the Canby Adult Center at least once or twice a week. And some of their events are a big deal even to the larger Canby community, like their annual Garage Sale, where it’s not unusual to see more than 100 people lined up before the doors open at 9 a.m. But how did it all begin? With a church. Bob “Hope” — back when he was just Bob Kauffman — was a carpenter working for Ivan Kropf at the Yoder Mill back in the mid-1950s. They were working to build a new church in the Hubbard area, when an idea came to Ivan. “He said it would be nice if we built a retirement community in this field here right next to the church,” Kauffman recalled. Though they did pursue it, nothing ultimately came of that location — providing the needed water, sewer and other utility hookups for the development proved to be too difficult for that rural area. But the seeds of Hope had been planted, and over the next several decades, they would continue to grow. Kauffman’s own church, 34 • CANBY COMMUNITY ADVANTAGE MAGAZINE


Zion Mennonite, in Hubbard, and Calvary Mennonite in Aurora, soon joined forces to attempt to make the retirement village a reality. They envisioned an affordable, full-service retirement community, with provisions for health, recreation, spiritual and social needs. It was an ambitious vision, to be sure, and one that proved to be too much for two little country churches, Kauffman said. “After we got started, we soon realized it was too big of a job for our two small communities,” he said. “We had to get other churches involved.” With the help of an attorney in Canby, Marv Bolin, the churches came together in 1983 under the umbrella of a newly established 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity. That was also when Hope Village got its name. It was originally an acronym: Housing Outreach Project for the Elderly, or H.O.P.E. It was a big step, and for a long time it was as far as they would get. “It was a bit like chasing the wind at the beginning,” Kauffman remembered, “because we didn’t have a site for about six years. We looked at six or seven different sites. We considered Molalla, Silverton, Woodburn and two different sites in Hubbard, and none of them seemed to fit the bill.”

son of Richard Dan Birkemeier — who owned the farm when he sold the property to Hope Village. Richard Birkemeier’s grandfather, Dan, was involved in the construction of more than 100 bridges in and around the Portland area, including the iconic Arch Bridge in Oregon City, for which he served as construction superintendent. Hundreds of Portland houses were built by Birkemeiers throughout the 20th century. But Richard Dan decided to go a different way. (CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE)

But the volunteers refused to lose hope (sorry). In 1989, the stars aligned as the perfect property, located just south of the Canby city limits, hit the real estate market. It was a field owned by Birkemeier Farms. The Birkemeier family were hazelnut farmers — though it hadn’t always been that way. “The Birkemeiers were builders,” said Richard Birkemeier,

HISTORY OF HOPE VILLAGE, continued “Dad, he wanted to branch out a bit,” said Richard Birkemeier. “He was always intrigued by farming, and that’s become our business still to this day.” The field that would become the home of Hope Village was actually the first property that he bought when he decided to become a filbert farmer, and things did not start well. The year was 1962, the same year as the notorious Columbus Day storm (Oct. 12). “The next morning, two-thirds of those trees were tipped over,” Birkemeier said. “It was kind of a rough start to the hazelnut business.” Fortunately, they had already harvested their crop for that year. With the sandy soils in the Canby area, filberts are traditionally gathered a bit earlier. The Columbus Day storm hit two days after they finished. Still, it was a devastating blow. Some of the trees were able to be replanted and salvaged, but many had to be replaced, which meant an additional 10 to 15 years before the trees became mature enough to start producing again. The decision to sell the property in the 1980s came as the growth of Canby began to encroach on the farming operations. Kauffman said the Birkemeiers were sold on the idea after Hope Village proponents took them on a field trip to a retirement community in Albany, to give

them a taste of what they wanted to build here in Canby. The property was placed in escrow for several years until the purchase was completed in 1992. Five years later, the first residents moved in: Frank and Mavis Morris. (Bob “Hope” Kauffman was second.) Richard Birkemeier’s mother, Margaret, also became a Hope Village resident in her later years. “You know, I think that was part of what Dad had in mind when he sold the property to them, that it would be a place for them to go,” he said. “Dad never made it that far, but my mother did.” During that time, the Hope Village board of directors also began negotiations with Marquis Quality Healthcare to lease a portion of their property for an assisted living facility. Marquis Hope Village, with 80 assisted living units and another 50 offering skilled nursing care, opened in 1998. Cascade House, a 50-unit affordable apartment complex opened in June 1998, and another, The Meadows, came online in 2004. Through 2007, Hope Village built 13 rows of garden homes on their grounds, for a total of 138 homes.

Stick With It In 2020!

S

o, you made that New Year’s resolution and you started (or revamped) your workout routine. Good for you! Let’s make this is the year you stick with it! Getting started is the hard part, they say. They forgot to tell you that staying consistent can be just as hard. So, instead of trying to muster up that elusive “will-power” when the going gets tough, put some things in place to help you get through the times when you feel like quitting. First, Be Realistic about your workouts. If you hate getting up early, there’s a good chance that 5 a.m. workout will be trumped by the snooze alarm more often than you’d hoped. Pick a time of day that works for you. The best time to workout is the time that works best for you! It’s easy for all the busyness of life to take over your schedule and the workouts get put on the back burner. So, Schedule Your Workouts just like you’d schedule an important meeting or a lunch date. You wouldn’t cancel a meeting with your boss because you don’t feel like going. Take that same approach with your workouts. Put it on your calendar and get to that “meeting!” Are you a social person? Make your workouts social! Find a workout buddy that can hold you accountable. Or join a group class where you can enjoy the camaraderie of sweating

together. Besides, it’s a lot harder to skip out if you know someone is waiting for you. Are you a music lover? Create a workout playlist, or join a dance class; find something that will make sure music is a part of your workouts. Regardless of what you choose, it’s important to Find Something You Like so that you’ll be more likely to stick with it! It’s common to take an all or nothing approach to exercise, but that can be a recipe for failure. Instead of all or nothing, Just Do Something! If you don’t have time for a full workout, take 10 minutes and do a few exercises. Or squeeze in an exercise or two here and there throughout your day. Something is always better than nothing. Are there too many meetings and phone calls on your schedule? Schedule a walking meeting or take a walk (or pace) while you are on a call. Choose to do something on those days when it seems impossible to exercise. It will keep you in the habit, prevent you from giving up on the day, and you’ll keep your body moving so that you feel better on even the craziest of days. If you’re still struggling to get those workouts in consistently, contact Annette at The Fitness Studio to join a class or schedule some personal training sessions. The small environment at The Fitness Studio is ideal for accountability. I would love to help you stick with your exercise in 2020.

Bella Capra by Tyler Francke Because the wars and conflicts in the Middle East no longer receive the front page stories and round-the-clock coverage they once did, it can be easy, for some, to forget the estimated 200,000 American troops that remain deployed all over the world. But not for Ninety-One School sixth-grader Bella Capra. For two years, she has been quietly sending letters to deployed soldiers, as just one small way she can show them their service is remembered and appreciated. Bella said she was inspired after hearing the story of Alleen Cooper, a 98-year-old grandmother who has written thousands of letters to troops overseas. “It said on the news that she had written over 6,000 letters to the troops overseas, and I just thought I could do the same,” she said. It takes a special person to hear about someone sending that many letters to deployed service members and think, “Hey — I could do that.” It takes someone like Bella Capra. And there’s more. It just so happens one of her classmates this year, Morgan Montgomery, has a brother who is currently serving in Afghanistan. His name is Ayden Ronning, and he’s also a Canby High School graduate, class of 2016. In his honor, Bella took it upon herself this past holiday season to not only send letters but also organize a group of friends to put together care packages for his entire unit for Christmas. The packages included homemade Christmas “countdown calendars,” thank you letters and Christmas cards. Ayden’s mother, Kari Ronning-Montgomery, said it’s “heartwarming” to see the community support overseas service members like her son, even more so when it’s something that is so organic and grassroots. 38 • CANBY COMMUNITY ADVANTAGE MAGAZINE


“While we are a military family, we recognize it’s by choice,” she said. “We are very proud, but modest about it. We are just so amazed by Bella, and the good she is bringing. It would be great if it became contagious for all our military.” Bella sent the care packages the week before Thanksgiving to make sure they arrived on time. Bella told us that her little project seems to be making a big impact on all those who hear about it. “They say to my mom, ‘you should be proud of her,’ and ‘she’s a good kid,’” Bella said with a laugh. That would be more than enough “amazing” for most folks, but this little dynamo is just getting started. In her “spare” time, she plays soccer and is a competitive indoor skydiver. “She stays busy,” her mother, Christy Capra, said. Yeah. No kidding. “Bella’s one of our frequent flyers,” chuckled Spencer Labunski, general manager of the iFLY indoor sky-diving facility in Portland, where Bella trains after school two to three times a week.

finished second in the freestyle junior intermediate category both years, and also took third in the dynamic 2-way advanced competition with her coach, David San Pedro. The 2020 competition was held in January at the iFLY facility in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The experience was “amazing,” she said, and went on to thank her coach, sponsors and fans. “I couldn’t have done it without all of your support!” she said. 

Bella has actually competed at the U.S. Indoor Skydiving Open National Championships the past two years. She

The Davies Clinic by Tyler Francke The Davies Clinic, which now operates with three staff physicians in downtown Canby across the street from Wait Park, was founded in 1957 by Dr. Edmund Davies, who was also an Osteopathic Physician. Osteopathic Medicine is a distinct branch of medicine in the U.S., emphasizing a holistic approach to health, with the idea that all systems in the body are interrelated and can work with the other to heal in times of illness. Richard Davies, MD

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, are fully licensed physicians who practice their unique whole-person approach in every medical specialty. His son, Dr. Richard Davies joined the clinic after he received his DeOna Bridgeman, MD medical degree from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1976, and the two practiced together until the elder Davies retired in 1981. Dr. Richard Davies also worked at Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center in Oregon City throughout his professional career, and spent 38 years as the physician adviser of emergency medical services for the Canby Fire District, retiring from that position less than three years ago. He was instrumental in the growth of both, including the emergence of urgent care services in Canby through Willamette Falls, though he’s characteristically humble in talking about it.

Their clinical team includes Dr. DeOna Bridgeman, who also serves as the clinic’s medical director, along with Dr. Janae Brill and Dr. JoAnna Anders. Drs. Bridgeman and Brill are both MDs (medical doctors), while Dr. Anders is an Adult Nurse Practitioner (ANP). “All three are amazing physicians,” said Adrienne Kersey, the clinic’s office manager. “Their goal is to provide a center for healing, helping anybody in any way that they can.” The clinic’s relationships with Providence and Legacy Health Systems enable them to provide patients access to the most advanced medical technology available, while their small size allows them to still provide exceptional personal service. “We have a history in the community that’s rooted in trust,” said Kersey. “Ever since we opened in 1957, the focus has always been on the patient.” Though it was completed years ago, returning patients still remark on the clinic’s full-scale remodel that took place over an 11-day period in 2014.

Janae Brill, MD, MPH

During that time, the clinic saw patients out of the Providence Canby Medical Plaza on SE Hazel Dell Way, while a construction crew frantically tore down and rebuilt walls, ripped up and replaced carpet, and basically transformed the clinic’s interior from top to bottom.

“We took it from a Cadillac ambulance to the three medics you see running around town all the time,” Dr. Davies said. “I like to think I had something to do with the urgent care that’s available in Canby now. We thought the town needed something, so we put it together with the help of Willamette Falls, and well, here it is.”

“It was very well-planned out,” Kersey said with a laugh. “It was a pretty big remodel, it gave us a little more space to work with patients and just brightened up the place.”

As Canby has grown and diversified, so too, has the Davies Clinic. Today, it’s a full-service family health clinic providing primary care to patients of all ages.

THE CHAMBER CORNER

FEBRUARY-MARCH 2020

Good Day, Canby, It’s all about new programming in the new year! The Canby Area Chamber is hard at work to be the best community partner we can be, and with that in mind, we’ve released a couple of new efforts. First, we have our leadership series that runs from January to June. You can still select to attend a single session or sign up for the remainder of the series. Classes run on the third Wednesday of the month from 7:30am to 9:00 am at Willamette Valley Country Club and include breakfast. We are working on ways to develop ourselves AND our employees so everyone can reach their best potential. Second, we have our upcoming Canby Employment Expo 2020 coming in April. This is a chance for local job seekers to meet the employers who make the economic engine of our region run. You can find more information on the event by checking out the Canby Area Chamber’s homepage. Finally, there is a reason to celebrate Canby! The 150th anniversary of the recording of Canby’s plat is this year! There will be all kinds of events around the area where you will have the chance to celebrate our longstanding history. While the official kickoff for the year’s celebrations is early March, the Canby Area Chamber is celebrating our history at the Annual Gala & Dinner Auction with some unique awards for our longstanding members. If you would like to attend the Annual Gala and participate in the fun, then go to the Chamber’s website, www.CanbyAreaChamber.com, for more information! 2020 is already shaping up to be a great year for the Chamber, for our members, for our community, and YOU!

EAT VERY LIGHTLY AND TAKE OUT THE “BAD STUFF” With most illnesses the appetite is diminished, this is a natural response of the body. Energy is needed to fight off the “bug” and the body doesn’t have the energy to process food. Give your digestive tract a rest! Take out foods that are inflammatory, high in sugar, bad fats, or that contain simple carbs. Don’t just eat to eat. Believe it or not, sometimes your body does need a break from meals!

GET REST AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

Many people ignore the early warning signs of illness and keep on working until they “drop.” You will take longer to heal if you allow the illness to get a foothold. If you feel a sore throat, headache, congestion, etc., coming on, take it easy. If possible, take a day off from work. This may prevent you from having to take three days later on.

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Story and Photos below by Tyler Francke PHOTO COURTESY OF ACTIVE WATER SPORTS

ACTIVE WATER SPORTS

w

arren Freece, owner and founder of Active Water Sports, and his team had spent many months scouring the Portland area, looking for a building that would help them expand their business and cater to their customers’ needs. When they found the pristine 4-acre parcel on the corner of SE Hazeldell and First Avenue in the Canby Industrial Park, Freece knew he had found their new home. For Freece, though, it was more like coming back home. “I own 24 acres of property on Mulino Road that my grandfather, who had the same name as I do, Warren Freece, bought in 1937,” Freece told the Canby Planning Commission in November 2018. “I’m excited about this. I wish my grandfather was still alive to see this project.” After a busy year of design, building and finishing, Active Water Sports’ sparkling new showroom and watercraft storage facility in Canby is now open. Canby, which sits at the confluence of the Willamette, Molalla and Pudding rivers, has long been a secret boaters’ paradise, but the secret’s out at Active Water Sports.

The 29,000-square-foot facility proudly showcases a rotating inventory of over 150 new and used boats, while also serving wakeboarders, surfers, water skiers, and more. For anyone who has fun on the water or is looking to do so, this is the mecca. The Canby project was led by Joe Sheets, senior project manager at Todd Hess Building Company in Portland. Sheets and Freece have a long history together. “I’ve known Warren since I was 17,” he says. “I’m now 48.” He recalls college days spent water skiing on Lake Mayfield, when Active — and watersports in general — were still in their infancy. Back then, Active’s footprint consisted of the trunk of Freece’s car, from which he began selling water skis, and later, a small corner of his dad’s NAPA Auto Parts store. It’s now the largest wakeboard and water ski shop in the Pacific Northwest and has long been a leader in the industry, with stores in Oregon City, Portland and now, of course, Canby.

ART & CULTURE “She has a beautiful voice, not only sings perfectly in tune but caresses the center of each note and swings up a storm. She deserves to be much better known beyond the Pacific Northwest… She’s one of the current greats.”

The hardimans MEET THE ARTISTS

by Tyler Francke Those words were from Scott Yanow, of the LA Jazz Times, describing the talent of local jazz vocalist Rebecca Hardiman. And, hey, what can we say? The man knows his stuff. It’s not for no reason that Rebecca and her husband, Ray, who plays piano and keyboard, have become a mainstay at any local events in need of some live music, from First Thursday to the Cutsforth’s Cruise-In, which they headlined last year. Their new show, a tribute to The Carpenters, has been especially popular, including a sell-out show in December at the Canby Pioneer Chapel. This is all in addition to their weekly gig every Friday at the Langdon Farms Golf Club, “Jazz at the Grill,” which they’ve been doing for the past seven years. “It’s kind of neat,” says Rebecca Hardiman. “We’re bringing jazz to this area, because a lot of folks who live around here don’t feel like driving into downtown Portland to hear top-notch jazz. So, bringing jazz here has been a real treat and a real success.” The Hardimans, both lifelong musicians, met in 1987, when Rebecca was a new graduate of Seattle’s Edmonds Community College, which is known for its premiere vocal programs and choirs and has a long association with jazz music in particular. Rebecca auditioned to sing for a Boston-based jazz ensemble called The Ritz, at about the same time as Ray, a native of Rhode Island. The Ritz was a hit, and Ray and Rebecca hit it off as well, and the band toured extensively over the next decade. The Hardimans even had the distinction of being some of the first musical artists to ever record a direct-to-digital track for a compact disc. CDs were niche in those days, and many from the old school felt like they would never replace the warm, tonal sound of vinyl records. “We were able to record using what was the state-of-the-art equipment at that time,” Ray Hardiman says. “It was about as big as a phone booth, to record what you could now do on your phone.” The Hardimans settled in the Portland area in 1990 and continued to tour with a new band called Euphoria. In 2010, Ray started performing solo in and around Silverton, and the couple began their association with Langdon Farms several years later. There, they typically perform as the Rebecca Hardiman Trio, with accompaniment by Mike Winkle, Craig Snazelle, Whitney Moulton and/or the legendary drummer Ron Steen, one of the Northwest’s top rhythm keepers and a leader of the Portland jazz scene.

COMMUNITY

KIWANIS CANBY COMMUNITY FOOD & TOY DRIVE by Tyler Francke

A

fter many months of preparation, well over a thousand hours of volunteer time, and support from a generous community, the 2019 Kiwanis Canby Community Food & Toy Drive was able to provide holiday assistance to 360 local families, including gifts for more than 920 children. The Drive serves residents who live within the boundaries of the Canby School District and who are not receiving assistance from another holiday program. They provide food baskets for family individuals and adults without children, as well as toys for children 0-18 years old. “The great thing about our Community Food and Toy Drive is that it’s all local,” said Canby Kiwanian Bob Hill, whose parents, Alta and Bob Hill, were instrumental in helping establish the Canby Kiwanis Thrift Store in 1952. “It’s all the Canby School District area. The donations come from there, and that’s where they stay.” The board accepts requests from the community in the weeks leading up to the Community Food & Toy Drive giveaway. Folks can request a box by filling out a simple form at the Canby Public Library or at other places around town.

No proof of need is required, and another longtime volunteer, Todd Gary, said he learned the reason why during a Community Food and Toy Drive a few years back. He recalled helping a woman and three kids. She was wearing expensive-looking clothes and had a really nice car — “More than I could afford,” Gary recalled. He didn’t say anything but the woman seemed embarrassed. That’s when he found out the woman’s husband had just left her, with three kids, a car and a house she could no longer afford. “To me, it was a real lesson not to judge anybody,” he recalled. “If they sign up, there’s a need. They’re not signing up just because. I’ve always kept that in the back of my mind whenever I’m helping carry out a box.” Canby Kiwanis started its “Christmas Food and Toy Drive” in 1958, with the club continuing to organize and helping fund the drive each year. Other civic groups and individuals have provided major contributions and volunteer hours throughout the years, including the Canby Lions Club and Canby Rotary Club. In a release from Canby Kiwanis this year, the group thanked the Clackamas County Event Center and staff, which hosts the giveaway each year, and the Canby Rotary Club, Direct Link, Action Acres, Shimadzu, PumpTech and Cutsforth’s Market for their generous financial donations.  60 • CANBY COMMUNITY ADVANTAGE MAGAZINE
