We discuss the ongoing controversies of Superintendent Mark Johnson and talk about the coal ash settlement between Duke Energy and the NC Department of Environmental Quality. And, as always we ask the panel to tell us something we don't know. This week's panel includes Donna Martinez of WPTF Radio and the John Locke Foundation, political and communications consultant Brad Crone, Chris Fitzsimon of the Newsroom and John Hood, syndicated columnist and author. Be sure to watch NC SPIN on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 12:30 p.m. Or you may stream the show after 5 pm Fridays by visiting our ncspin.com website. Thanks for watching NC SPIN.
