Sell or close down dome if no viable business plan
Dear Editor: As a long-term resident and taxpayer in Guelph, I resent the audacity of Guelph Community Sports in their demands for additional financial support and the continuing burden they are placing on all of the taxpayers.
Young cheerleaders should be cheered, not jeered

'Foes' too adversarial a word
Dear Editor: The front page story with headline “Farbridge foes form new group” (Tribune, Sept. 3) was about a group that is forming to support particular candidates in the next municipal election.
Real new year starts now
Guelph Matters column by Chris Clark: This sleepy burgh we call home is sleepy no more. Summer break is over. University students land en masse, spicing up our lives – not always, but mostly for the good.
Questions of obsolescence
