Paulson Ski Trails Have Two New Bridges

Just in time for the coming ski season, the Castlegar Nordic Ski Club has completed the installation of two new ski trail bridges at the Paulson Ski Trails, located along highway 3 near the Paulson summit, 32 km. west of Castlegar.  The new bridges replace old log structures crossing Big Sheep Creek on the club’s Short-Loop and Mid-Loop trails.  Both bridges, which were designed by SNT Engineering Ltd. of Nelson, have 3 metre wide timber decks with steel superstructures and are 11 metres in length.

COLUMN: From the Hill -- Remembrance Day and Our Veterans

Last week I had the honour of laying a wreath on behalf of Canada in remembrance of our veterans at the cenotaph in Castlegar.  My childhood memories of these outdoor events are coloured by bone-chilling winds and early snowfalls, but last Friday a truly warm sun peeked out of the clouds. A large eagle flew overhead as the choir sang, adding to the atmosphere of an already moving ceremony.

City moves to permanently close Hall Street rear lane

The plan is to close the laneway and add access stairs.

The rear lane off of Hall Street will remain closed despite some opposition to its decommissioning.

City council approved in their regular meeting Monday night that the rear lane present between 308 and 312 Hall Street would remain closed and that landscaping be completed to create an amenity area.

The closure of the lane and the construction of the landscaped amenity area are estimated to cost $7,000.

Selkirk College is marking International GIS Day with an event that includes an exploration of the hot button issue of Open Data.

Open Data is linked to Open Government and has been adopted by senior levels of government (including the Canadian Federal Government and the Province of BC) and large Canadian cities like Vancouver, Surrey, Edmonton, and Toronto. The small size of many rural governments and resulting lack of capacity means that few if any rural governments provide Open Data in Canada and around the world.
