Accessibility Issues Found On The New Houston Home Journal Website

  • On Wednesday, April 15, 2024, The Houston Home Journal unveiled a new website.
  • In response to stumbling across the new website on Sunday, April 21, 2024, I took a look at the new website. Unfortunately, I found some accessibility issues with the website that impacts people who use screen-reading software.

My Opposition Letter To The Macon-Bibb County Transit Authority About Raising Its Bus Fares, Especially The Paratransit Service Fares

  • While I was not happy with the response that I received on Monday afternoon, even though that I “stated my opinion/opposition” to the bus fare increase, I am still going to post this letter on this website. The reason that my opinion didn’t get counted is that well, I’m “not a resident of Bibb County nor used their services.” This is total non-sense, and they MUST listen to the public, from disability rights advocates like me!
