  What kind of suit will Don Cherry be buried in?PDF files may take a moment to load

They say that the only things in life that are certain are death and taxes-- I tend to agree. Death becomes us all at some point, but the impact of the loss of life is never equal in our society. There are certain individuals that transcend their everyday surroundings and have an impact on the wider society that leaves an indelible mark on people forever. I feel that Don Cherry is a perfect example of this.

  Men's soccer Report CardPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary men's soccer squad truly merits two grades, as their season was essentially the tale of two different teams. The first half of the season saw them go 0-5-2 and have a goals scored/goals against differential of minus six, hardly a recipe for a competitive season in the Canada West conference. The turning point for the soccersaurs came after a disappointing 2-1 setback in Lethbridge against the Pronghorns on Sept. 27.

  In defence of huntingPDF files may take a moment to load

Every year for nearly three decades, a group of friends drive for hours to the northern expanses of Alberta to get out and enjoy nature. They have been friends since high school, but now live all over the province. Every year, no matter the circumstances, they gather to go hunting. This group has been doing this for years and they will continue for many more. These men do not fit the stereotypical description of hunters.

  It's report card time!PDF files may take a moment to load

At the end of every University of Calgary Dino season we here at the Gauntlet take time to give praise or criticism to those who are much more athletic than us. Chances are they are more popular, better looking and smarter too, but being unbiased journalists, we will not let that factor into our assessments. This year we offer an out-of-five rating to the men's and women's soccer squads, the field hockey team, the cross-country team and the football team.

But don't underestimate her tenacity when it comes to taking care of business. Although she may be quieter than most, Judd goes above and beyond her role as Students' Union vice-president of operations and finance. In times of high stress, she ensures everything is running smoothly and efficiently within the SU's budget, overseeing $25 million in assets and over $12 million of annual revenues.
