Before I was a journalism student at Western, I would pick up Klipsun at various locations on campus, flip through it, read a couple of stories and set it down. I never understood the full magnitude of work that one issue of Klipsun requires. Since the magazine is a student-run publication, everything from the photographs to the stories to the cover design is created, edited and finalized by Western students. Production is an amazing process, and words cannot express how it feels to see the final product on stands throughout Bellingham.

Similar to Klipsun staff members in the past, we have strived to make this issue as flawless and captivating as we can. The editorial staff took pride in choosing stories that catered to a wide variety of people in the community. In this issue, in addition to light stories about poker and bingo, we included stories about environmental issues, such as global warming, and about social issues, such as the illegal use of prescription drugs. While the writers poured their time into creating their stories, we as an editorial staff poured our energy into creating a beautiful final product. I hope all who read this issue keep in mind the incredible journey one issue of Klipsun takes.
