    NC Governor punts on school re-open decision

    After raising expectations that he'd announce plans for re-opening North Carolina schools, Governor Roy Cooper punted yesterday. He said he'd need a few more weeks to decide.

I’m so excited Pete is back!

I have greatly miss Pete’s perspective, especially on local politics. Lord knows we need that in Asheville’s one-sided political system.

The Pete Kaliner Show Informative and well sourced

The show is Informative and well presented with information we all need to know in this fast moving news cycle. He covers national, state, and local news with common sense and some humor. Pete is so informed with the latest news and the impact on our lives. We do need to prepare for the next wave if it never comes in our lifetime, at least you will prepared for whatever comes. No more two systems one country as the CCP demands. Let’s face it CCP is an enemy of freedom.
