Sixty-three. According to Forbes, that’s the percentage of U.S. citizens that currently can’t cover a $500 emergency. That’s scary. Even though we’re college students and dealing with low amounts of money is kind of our stereotype (at least one of many), the fact that is widely perceived to …

Election cycles, especially this past one, have the unbelievable ability to divide the nation along political lines. This is self-evident in the protests we have seen across the country and on our own campus. I feel there should be a fair amount of credit given to the students of Gonzaga, th…

I attended Gonzaga from 1970-1973, and would have graduated with my class in 1974, had my father not died of a sudden heart attack on the morning of April 4, 1973.  I then graduated from the University of Idaho and became a long-time prosecuting attorney in Idaho (Boundary County) and in Dal…

In the recent past, people like me have been labeled extremists.  Only a couple weeks ago, in this newspaper, I was labeled an extremist by a peer; mzy own president compared me and people who think like me to the Islamic extremists who control Iran, and Hillary Clinton — the front-runner in…

As the month of September is coming to a close, it is important to remember that this month is Suicide Prevention month. As a member of the Gonzaga and West Coast Conference communities, this month is extremely important to me for many personal reasons.
