In today's age, when society's perception of what is right or wrong is constantly in question, we are bombarded with the notion that our reality could, ironically, very well not be real.

A rookie's season can be long, filled with mistakes, spent on the bench and getting hazed by veterans. The season can also be a time to grow, learn from mistakes and prove you belong.

Rookies such as Melissa Zubick, Sinead Tracy, Danielle Braaten, Tanya Morgan, Erin Davidson, Megan Frohaug and Nikki Love all contributed to the success of the Dinos thus far.

  Letter: Response to the prezPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

In a recent article to the Gauntlet regarding the de-sanctioning of the club Campus Pro-Life ["Letter from the SU prez: Why Campus Pro-Life was de-sanctioned," Feb. 26], SU president Dalmy Baez attempted to exculpate her organization for its actions. As this article gave false impressions which may mislead the student body, it seems wise to shine further light upon the matter.

The University of Calgary Board of Governors met last Thursday and the open session was enthralling. It was filled with pertinent university issues and a lively discussion about the creation of a new and very powerful BOG committee, the Human Resources and Governance Committee.

I understand that BOG can seem boring at times, so I've jazzed up this report for your enjoyment.

  The truth is in the skyPDF files may take a moment to load

Whether the truth really is "out there" or whether we are all out to lunch, it seems that Canadians have reported a record number of UFO sightings in 2008. Ufology Research, the Winnipeg-based organization that released these findings, claims that this does not necessarily represent extra-terrestrial crafts, but that the rise in sightings of mysterious lights is indicative of increased access to online reporting of such sightings.
