It’s tradition at Klipsun to use a theme for the second issue of the quarter. It gives the staff writers a stronger focus on their story because they have a specific set of boundaries given to them by the editors. We decided on the theme of ‘Youth Culture,” hoping for intimate portraits of what it’s like to be a young person in Whatcom County today.

This issue is particularly special, because every Klipsun read er has been young. We’ve all experienced being at awkward ages, trying to discover and establish identities, reaching goals and stumbling through hardships. My hope for you as a read er is that you will find a story in this issue that will remind you of your own youth, looking back at the journey that has led you to adulthood. For these kids, the journey has barely begun.
