Imagine being in your early 20s, playing with guitar virtuosos like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, recording three albums that sell very well and constantly being dubbed "the next Stevie Ray Vaughn." Now imagine what an egomaniac most people would become when faced with this kind of acclaim. This was certainly not the case with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Noah Hunt who were in town to promote their latest CD Live On.

Students hoping for a repeat performance of last year's tuition fight extravaganza will have to look to the Revolutionary Anarchist Kollective for activities.

"Like last year, we're trying to mobilize the student population as much as possible for the short term goal of a tuition freeze," said RAK member Wesley Morgan. "In the long term, we want to promote the five point program for tuition abolition."

  SU and Admin cut tuition dealPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary Students' Union and administration have negotiated an agreement regarding the level of tuition increases students will see next year. Both parties refuse to release the exact numbers of the increase until Fri., Jan. 21.

The Gauntlet has recently discovered, however, that the recommendation will be for 65 per cent of the maximum allowable increase. This works out to $188.42 per year for 10 courses.

They've tried almost everything to have their views on rising tuition costs heard, from storming the president's office, to making demands through the Gauntlet. And after all the effort, it appears the Revolutionary Anarchist Kollective will have their day. University of Calgary President Dr. Terry White has granted students, faculty and community members a chance to voice their concerns at a town hall meeting scheduled for 12-1 p.m. on Fri., Jan. 21, in the MacEwan Hall Ballroom.

  Secret tuition deal kills school spirit deadPDF files may take a moment to load

Life at the U of C is pretty halcyon.

People drift through halls, classes happen, and exhaust fills the sky as students split at quittin' time. It's a rare occasion that students show any other side to themselves than overwhelming haste and apathy... and that time should be rapidly approaching.

And so, with this year's BoG meeting nearing, are any other students asking themselves why they've heard nothing about it? The answer to that is easy: neither Administration nor your own SU wants you to.

  The day we hung Tom Skerritt:PDF files may take a moment to load

Six-fifteen a.m. The sun drives a slow and steady spike through the morning sky. My eyes stretch out across this barren land, with its bony crust and rattling snakes as lethal as the journey I am about to board. I have entered a transient place where I fade into the surrounding landscape, beyond the tunnelled view of your perception. I am a quiet flash of skin, a laughing drunken man at a table, a corpse along a hillside.
