In the October 2015 Print Edition

Oct 01, 2015 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
Fall is here. Mums are in bloom, leaves are dropping quickly from the trees, pumpkins are for sale everywhere, and Halloween decorations are going up. It’s the season for harvest festivals to celebrate a successful planting, growing and harvesting season.

In Bellingham, fall sports are in full swing, as Ken Hamway writes about in his Sports Spotlight. The new police station had its grand opening, and we’ve got a photo from that event, as well as some additional photos here on the website.

We’ve also included in the October issue an article explaining exactly how we go about deciding what makes it into our print edition. Because we can only print as many pages as we have advertising to support, and generally have more information than we have space to include, we developed, a long time ago, a system of prioritization which we continually refine. So if you’ve ever wondered why something that you submitted did not make it into print, read the article on page 2 of the October issue and you’ll understand—that is, assuming it wasn’t just human error, which we are guilty of, from time to time.

Following are some highlights from the October 2015 issue. (To view a PDF of the October print edition, scroll down and click on the newspaper icon.)  Have a Happy Autumn!
