Public Health Month in NC

County public health departments across North Carolina help communities year-round through immunizations, screenings, and promotion of healthy lifestyles, while also dealing with a rising death rate related to opioid misuse. NC Governor Roy Cooper has designated April as Public Health Month. Opioid misuse has become a focus of health officials as the opioid crisis swells across the state. Public health officials’ focus is on increasing awareness and prevention of opioid misuse, reducing the oversupply of prescription opioids and the flow of illicit drugs, making naloxone widely available to those in need and linking overdose survivors to care.

Tax Day and Tax Scams

Tax Day 2018 is tomorrow.  And locally, residents continue to get the phone call from scammers that say you must pay a fine related to taxes or you will be arrested.  The most recent report to the Wilkes Sheriff's Office was from a Wilkesboro woman last week. Thousands of people have lost millions of dollars and their personal information to tax scams. Scammers use the regular mail, telephone, or email to set up individuals, businesses, payroll and tax professionals. The IRS doesn't initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information.  And the IRS will not call and demand payment by any type of pre-paid card.  For more information on filing taxes or tax scams, visit www.irs.gov
