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.

    Thank you to Brent for calling attention to this very important issue… I am an organic farmer and no longer farming due to “contrail clouding” in the area. There are many of us concerned about this issue and this is a great way to get people involved… Thanks again, Sue Huelbig

      Wow- we have a winner.

      Cue the negative science-based conspiracy theories.

      “Contrail clouding”, to anyone who has ever taken a science class is called condensation.
      Makes me think of the crazy General from “Dr. Strangelove’ ranting about fluoride in the water and ‘bodily fluids’.

      You do know that we never (giggle) went to the (guffawing) Moon too, right? It was all a (laugh) conspiracy on the part of the gub’ment.
