ORANGE — Wilbert Wallace Jr. could not stop smiling long after Publishers Clearing House made a surprise visit to Orange on Thursday. Wallace won $10,000 from the popular company and it added another $10,000 for the Orange resident being a “Super Fan” on PCH’s Facebook page. The adventure to get the money to Wallace took an unexpected turn as he was not home when the checks first arrived for him. Publishers Clearing House officials worked the phones and found neighbors who soon found Wallace and told him to get home. “They told me something was going on,” Wallace said. “I thought something was happening at the house and it did happen.” Wallace was quick to point out his first order of business with the money. “I am going to give my kids some money,” Wallace, the father of two, said. “I don’t know what I am going to do with the rest. Y’all have really made my day. This will come in handy.”
