  Editorial: It's time to oust AndersPDF files may take a moment to load

There's something to be said about political cronyism. Rob Anders' bid to be his party's candidate for the riding of Calgary West for the fifth time hit a bump after his acclamation was overturned Fri., March 16. A Calgary judge determined that Anders' acclamation wasn't acceptable and the riding association wasn't following the proper nomination process. The anti-Anders group was composed of 11 Tories who claimed the party didn't advertise the important dates or search for any other qualified candidates.

Sometimes it's necessary to take one step backward before you can take two steps forward. While finishing fifth out of six teams in the Alberta College Athletic Conference and being exiled in the opening round of the playoffs may not seem to most like a successful year, the University of Calgary Dinos women's hockey team faithful know that their team's 2006/07 season was a gigantic leap in the right direction.

  Bob Boston: The LegendPDF files may take a moment to load

University is full of legends and folklore. Students scrambling to stay on top of papers, midterms and finals often look to good luck rituals and campus traditions for reassurance. Among these legends is Bob Boston, a physical education student from the 1970s, who has inspired many students over the years. Boston's legend stems from his achieving a perfect 4.0 GPA upon his graduation in 1974. Many students believe that rubbing his picture in the kinesiology complex will ensure good luck to test-takers.

  Letter: Combat apathyPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Back at the University of Calgary I used to volunteer three times a week with different campus organizations, yet never felt like it was enough to me.

It never ceases to amaze me when people ask me not only why I volunteer so much, but why I do it at all. We live in a country which is economically well off and many of us in university live a rather unburdened life--whether financial or otherwise--yet so many of us are either selfish or apathetic and sometimes both.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

[Re: "Residence students deserve better," Ændrew Rininsland, March 15, 2007.}

I feel that an accurate portrayal of the residence experience was not given in this editorial. While residence students are in a difficult position with rising costs and decreasing conditions in the older apartment buildings, the residence experience is still a sound one for many reasons. Sound enough that of 1,450 students, over 900 re-applied for residence next year.
