This week's Mountain Xpress features a cover story about John Payne, the man who turned the Wedge Building into an influential spot for artists and for the revitalization of Asheville's River District. Payne died last month. The cover story looks at his work and his influence.
There are also stories about the ongoing lawsuit between the city of Asheville and Buncombe County and the state of North Carolina regarding control of its water system; a recent lawsuit filed against the Buncombe County Sheriff's Office; plans to replace the members of the county's planning board; and much more.
