The fine print: The Horizon has been the student newspaper of Whatcom Community College since 1973. It is entirely student-produced and funded primarily by S&A fees and advertising. The Horizon is considered a public forum and therefore, articles, commentaries, photographs, and cartoons are welcome from any enrolled students for possible publication. Anonymous submissions will not be considered. Editorials and reviews reflect the opinion of the author. Advertisements in the Horizon do not reflect the opinion of the newspaper. The Horizon is distributed free on and around campus entitling each person to one copy. Additional copies are $1 each. The Horizon reserves the right to limit the number of copies. Newspaper theft is considered a form of censorship and is punishable by law. Thank you for supporting democracy in education. Your paper; your voice. Printed at the Lynden Tribune Printing Co.
