Mountain Xpress: you rock.
I hope you get told this from time to time and not just complaints about what you're doing wrong. Thanks for letting people post free ads in your classifieds and for all that you do to stimulate the local economy and keep community alive (such as the “Best of WNC” and “Living Green” issues). Thanks for your progressive take on local news and your coverage of the arts.
From what I can see, you appear to be an intelligent model of how to run a business and enrich your community simultaneously. Please keep up the good work, you are appreciated!

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.
