  Gauntlets LibertedPDF files may take a moment to load

Somebody dislikes the University of Calgary's student newspaper.

On the evening of Monday, Sept. 2, one or more unknown individuals relocated approximately 2,000 copies of the Aug. 8 issue of the Gauntlet from pick-up stands to nearby garbage, bottle and other receptacles. Stands in publically-accessable parts of campus remained devoid of papers for about two hours as Gauntlet staffers reversed the misdeed.

"This makes me curious," said Gauntlet Editor-in-Chief Kris Kotarski. "I don't know who would do this."

Entertainment Editor Myke Atkinson has plans for his section, ambitious plans. Yet Atkinson has a problem; he is an addict, an addict of Harlequin Romance.

As yet, Atkinson's problem hasn't impacted his editing abilities, but the longer the books are left in his hands, the greater the temptation to review Harlequin becomes.

Many of us take for granted the fact that most of our home continent has been thoroughly explored. This leads us to conclude that the same is true for the rest of the world, an assumption which could not be further from the truth. Explorers still roam the earth searching for treasures of the distant past; the University of Calgary is fortunate to have one such sleuth as a faculty member.

  Comissioner Preston still in troublePDF files may take a moment to load

Almost two months after Students' Union Academic Commissioner Gavin Preston commented about commissioner remuneration, he will face a hearing on charges of breaking SU bylaws. Scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday September 10 in Council Chambers, the hearing may determine if Preston is responsible and impose sanctions, or refer the matter to a Review Board.

At issue are Vice-President Academic Rosie Nagra's allegations that Preston over-reported the number of hours he worked in June, and was hence overpaid by Nagra.

What a difference a summer makes. Not long ago, Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien was roasted in the media because of the internal turmoil in the ranks of the all-powerful Liberal party.

  Various Artists, Blue Light One: An Upstairs RecordingPDF files may take a moment to load

In an age seemingly dominated by down-tempo DJs and melodic beats, it's hard to separate yourself--especially when you've been thrown on a compilation disc with one song to prove your worth. However, the artists on Blue Light One, all currently being produced under the Nettwerk subsidiary Upstairs Recordings, attempt to do just that. And, overall, they succeed.
