In the span of Klipsun’s existence, it has served as campus yearbook and magazine, spurred controversy over racy illustrations and won numerous awards for excellence from the Society of Professional Journalists, the Washington Press Association and others. Klispun has worn many covers over the years, but continues to this day to serve as a face of Bellingham lifestyles.
This issue goes to the heart of Bellingham: whether it is overcoming a life- shattering drug addiction, where Whatcom County drug cases surpass the average rate of Washington state, or following a group of leather-clad bikers riding their hogs in support of children with cancer, there is a little glimpse of everything. Take, for example, a group of bicyclists who meet every Wednesday to ride their bikes – rain, sleet or snow. Or a coffee shop that serves as the town hot spot for chess matches, where every person from any walk of life, is welcome. And where else do you find a group of people jumping over tables, buildings and trees for fun?
In the production of this issue, our staff strove to make changes in content, design and photography to become a more readable, more enjoyable magazine. Klipsun has evolved over the years and will continue to change and morph as we strive to serve you, our readers. We welcome and appreciate your feedback. Happy reading.
