Route 3 fall 2015 edition is now available.

Trail Times highlighted in fall issue of Route 3 magazine

The latest issue of Black Press’ popular lifestyles magazine Route 3 is now available on newsstands and at coffee shops around the region

The latest issue of Black Press’ popular lifestyles magazine Route 3 is now available on newsstands and at coffee shops around the region.

The cover story by Will Johnson looks at TheLineUp, a live show at Nelson’s Shambhala Hall hosted by Jenna Raider that mixes interviews and performances. It also gives Selkirk College students experience at creating a TV show, as the segments are filmed and posted online.

Sheri Regnier recounts the long history of the Trail Times, which turns 120 this year. Founded in 1895 by W.F. Thompson as the Trail Creek News, it has undergone several name and ownership changes but has always been an integral part of the community.

Andrew Tripp takes us on a tour of Route 3 through the West Boundary, stopping at  historic buildings and sites along the way, including the Lawless ranch, the Schorn house at Bridesville, the McArthur home in Greenwood, the Rock Creek Hotel, and St. Mary’s Church.

Betsy Kline writes about what might be Castlegar’s greatest jewel: Millennium Park, which boasts soccer fields, playground equipment, natural swimming pools, walking paths, and flower beds. The newest addition is the Celgar Pavilion, a multi-use facility featuring a covered picnic area and concession.

Trisha Elliott talks to the founder of Sufferfest, the annual race between Nakusp, Kaslo, and New Denver which includes trail runs, mountain biking, cyclocross, and duathlon events. Created six years ago, the event continues to grow. Participants have tripled and there are plans for a new winter triathlon.

Finally, Craig Lindsay examines how the first year has gone for the Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agriculture Society’s mobile abattoir since passing inspection. Turns out it has been extremely busy and a boon to local ranchers.
