If you turn to page 6, you will see three images: a pile of holocaust victims, a lynched black man and an aborted fetus.

With the 2006 Olympic Winter Games safely in the past, the University of Calgary is basking in the reflected glory of the most successful Canadian Olympic Team in history. Ever since the Calgary Games of 1988, the U of C has been a training hub for speed skaters, hockey players and bob-sledders from across the country. In total, 22 athletes directly related to the U of C have given the sweat off their backs for the privilege of representing Canada at the 2006 Games, an event that many regard as the most honourable in sport.

"The U of C had 166 donations," said Youth Donors of Canada vice-president communications Grayham Gardiner. "The U of S took in 318 and U of A had 46 donations."

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I am a kinesiology staff member on campus and have been offering nature walks for staff during the lunch hour for two years. It has come to my attention that the area just west of the library, known as the "Sculpture Garden" is slated for destruction in order to build the digital library.

  Tennis in winter?!?PDF files may take a moment to load

Fourteen members of the cash-strapped Dinos tennis team squeezed into a 15-seat bus and traveled down to Washington over reading break to play a series of doubles and singles matches against four American schools.

The little bus they went in had enough space to fit their tennis racquets, but evidently not enough room for the Dinos' A-game. Only the women's doubles squads were able to collect any wins during their week of matches in the alliterative city of Walla Walla, Washington.

The Dinos men's basketball team's season was cut short of March Madness. The do-or-die Canada West central division semi-final best-of-three series Feb. 17-19 killed hopes for a miraculous win as the University of Alberta Golden Bears clutched the Dinos' purse of dreams and ran off to Saskatchewan. The weekend brought back painful memories from when the Bears won the central division semi-final on the Dinos' home court last season.
