Discussed on this edition of More To The Story was the report in Asheville's Mountain Xpress on "Buncombe County Faces a Lack of Affordable Childcare."  Parents working outside the home have to depend on daycare for their children, which doesn't come easy, especially when it comes to the price tag for the average household.  Intern Writer Hannah Massen, with some assistance, handled the article that was discussed with WNCW by Mountain Xpress Managing Editor, Virginia Daffron.  This interview was on-air July 3, 2019.

The Asheville Citizen Times recently published a story by Reporter/Journalist- Joel Burgess entitled 'A Decade After the Great Recession, Analysis Shows Asheville Spending Nearly Stagnant'.  Joel was the guest of this edition of More to the Story that first aired June 12, 2019. Ten years later - has Asheville transformed when looking at income and home costs?
