Fake Emails Supposedly from Wilkes Playmakers

Someone is using Wilkes Playmakers name in spam emails to solicit payments.  Wilkes Playmakers have received several notifications this week that many of their patrons have received an email that appeared to have been sent by Wilkes Playmakers asking for invoice payment.  Wilkes Playmakers did not send those emails, and they are unsure at this time how their contact list was obtained.  Measures are being taken to protect patron information. Wilkes Playmakers warns that you should not open the spam emails, do not click on any link, do not pay any invoice, or provide any personal information.  Just delete the email immediately. Wilkes Playmakers currently only uses Wilkesplaymakers@hotmail.com, and they only send invoices via secured sites such as Square or PayPal.

Solar Farm in Wilkes

Will Wilkes County have a solar farm?  There has been talk for a few months, and recently, an application was filed.  That application was filed the end of June with the N.C. Utilities Commission for a solar energy farm  on Shew Ridge Mission Road in Wilkes County. The 20-megawatt solar farm on a 164-acres in the Antioch Community would be one of the largest solar farms in northwestern North Carolina. The application projects selling 48.9 million kilowatt hours of electricity to Duke Energy annually starting in early 2018. According to an N.C. Utilities Commission legal notice announcing the application, the commission will hold a public hearing before approving the application if a complaint is filed.
