I'm a lists person. I get a strange delight from checking little Nike signs on my daily list of "Things to do."

This issue's stories of triumph, surrender and hope inspired me to create an ongoing list — a list of things to do before I die. Learning 12 languages, solving local hunger and playing the mandolin, while extra­ ordinary, don't occupy a spot on the list. Other topics, however, such as mystery, money, romance and reli­gion, definitely beg a place.

My list will surely grow just as Klipsun's reper­toire will. But when my time ...

Autumn is the season of transition at Western. A new academic year embarks, and the accompanying anxiety and excitement consumes university life.

New students curiously walk the campus, helping each other navigate the unfamiliar environment. Old friends meet and catch up on the events of summer. Days become shorter, and the colors of Bellingham change.

Klipsun is also in transition. The magazines format has changed to embody shorter features and increased visual content. Inside this issue, readers will discover a great range of transitions that Western students and members of the greater Western community experience.

I encourage sports fans to ...

Klipsun celebrates lifestyles, art and entertainment by telling a variety of stories about people residing in, or connected to, the Pacific Northwest.

My editorial staff and I have evaluated how these stories can be presented more effectively. The result is a reformatted magazine, which includes more art and shorter stories.

The content of this issue includes hiking, body building, last I wishes and rap music — assorted topics that individually delve into a slice of life.

I recommend reading Jamie Trudel's “Two Men and a Baby” to our readers intrigued by gay rights. Photography enthusiasts should look at Matt Anderson ...

Saying goodbye? Not always.

Sometimes it’s hard to bid farewell when we depart from a person, an era or Ideology, but people find comfort in the possibility of returning again and recapturing what once was.

Because this notion is so prevalent in modern lifestyles, the Klipsun staff decided to make a tribute to all things old and explore symptoms of nostalgia that surround us today.

In Bellingham, the Ladies of the Evening Society members honor the history of Fairhaven bordello owners and madams in the 1890s by dressing and acting the part of historical legends. Upon returning to her ...

Juggling is an art. Whether it is juggling school and grueling nightshift labor, balancing spirituality and faith with the demands of a material world or the actual craft of juggling, this skill seems to appear as a resurfacing theme in this issue of Klipsun.

Traditionally, the first issue of the quarter is non-themed and contains a variety of stories. This issue appears more as a mosaic than miscellany. Individual snapshots converge to form the greater picture: our world and lives are in a state of continual tension between two effects, ideas or paths.

In the midst of our juggling act ...

When we selected this issue’s theme in November, the topics on all our minds were the election and ensuing political issues. We found ourselves so passionately talking about certain topics that we felt we had no other choice than to publish these controversial topics in Klipsun. Some people on the Klipsun staff expressed concerns about publishing a political issue so long after the election. We decided, however, that just because the election was over didn’t mean we had forgotten the issues.

Politics are personal. They affect our everyday lives, from paying taxes to checking out library books, and ...
