Wilkes News was put together when I had a hard time finding local news online. In this day and age it was just unacceptable. The major news paper in the county has a web site but doesn’t publish any of the content on line. The Record does have a site and does publish content online, but they have no RSS feed available. I wanted to be able to read the news in my news reader. So quite literally and honestly the site was born out of frustration. It’s powered by WordPress and some clever automation. Soon I hope to have my own search bot coded up that can find the stories.
