Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.

    Yay! Thanks Carlvin and Stomps website, I discovered how many companies are lobbying Pat McCrory and friends to repeal HB2. I don’t know if I would have searched this out on my own. Wow, there’s a lot of big names there. Sure you want to piss them all off? When was the last time you saw Northrop Grumman, Facebook, Starbucks, and IBM agree on anything? Thanks again, Carlvin and Stomps!
