LGBTQ, Age, Gender added to Paducah’s Human Rights Commission

PADUCAH, KY – The Paducah City Commission voted 4-1 passing a Fairness Ordinance on Jan. 9, 2018 that will focus on age, gender identity and sexual orientation complaints. The complaints will be handled by Paducah’s Human Rights Commission that was already in place.

it was standing room only at City Hall with people out in the hallways either waiting to be called to voice their thoughts at the podium or to hear the outcome of the historic vote.

Mayor Brandi Harless was at the helm of this Fairness Ordinance and worked overtime to help pass this amendment. She is a trailblazer – to say the least – and has done a remarkable job since voted in by the people of Paducah in November 2016.  And with this historic endeavor we can add another A+ to her already impressive 5.0 GPA as Mayor.

The new amendment represents fairness, equality and nondiscrimination for everyone. Read details from source at paducahky.gov.

Bridges, Metropolis IL

METROPOLIS, IL – Bridges Dining Company is a full-service restaurant and bar inside the Harrah’s Hotel and Casino on 100 E. Front Street in Metropolis, IL.

Bridges features American gourmet fare at its best with a simple, easy to read menu to boot. The prices range from $16 for the Bridges Burger to $44 for the 22 oz Porterhouse with two sides.

I highly recommend the $16 Bridges Burger that comes with fries. The burger comes to your table loaded with everything so there’s no extra costs. You get cheese, bacon, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles and a whole lot more.

The management and staff are what makes this place so special, though. They recently updated their menu and made it even better so I posted it below

Godaddy – errors & timeouts

Errors and timeouts are some common errors you may have when hosting with Godaddy.  I had the WordPress Hosting Plan and below are screenshots of the errors.

I had these issues for months and Godaddy recommended that I purchase more services. I purchase all the services except for the really expensive Private Server.

In short my site was getting to be unaffordable while the errors continued. I was losing viewers and my revenue was cut in half. I was literally at a loss. So I tried Hostgator and Siteground. Hostgator was slow and Siteground was lightning fast.

I moved my site (photonews247.com) to Siteground around mid 2017 and never had an issue since.

My recommendation is to move to Siteground.com if you are having any problems with Godaddy or Hostgator. The people at Siteground don’t push sales since everything you buy just simply works.
