Xpress-rated: Video sneak peek

Here’s your preview of the Sept. 17 edition of Mountain Xpress. This week’s cover story, by reporter Rebecca Bowe, focuses on climate change in Alaska and what it means for Western North Carolina. Bowe was part of a team of journalists invited by the Knight Center for Environmental Journalism to travel to Alaska to view the on-the-ground effects of climate change. Her experiences there provided some of the material for the story.

Other stories this week include a look at an upcoming show by artist Gabriel Shaffer and a run-down on locally made beer that will be featured at this weekend’s Brewgrass beer festival.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    It was his first time on video, so he was pretty nervous.

    Considering where your hand was, I’m not surprised he was nervous.
