Northwest Passage

Bellingham's Underground Newspaper
The Northwest Passage office was located on the second floor of the Morgan Building, home to Good Earth Pottery and Atwood Studios. That office is now occupied by Martini Metal Craft. 

According to

"The Northwest Passage was known for covering issues that the straight news media would often ignore. They never strived for objectivity, but rather focused on influencing people and being a voice for counterculture. The Passage's first big break was when they exposed that Georgia Pacific was letting mercury discharges go into Bellingham Bay. They often reported on environmental issues and were known for their persistent muckraking."
