HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- If you receive a letter in the mail saying you won a lottery out of Spain... it's probably a scam.
We all hope to win a lottery one day and get thousands of dollars poured into our bank account, but some people are scheming to drain that money from your account instead.
A Huntsville resident received a letter in the mail saying they won a lottery out of Madrid and it came from "The Desk of the Vice President of the Mega Lottery Picker 2019 Draw Prize Award Department." Sound fishy to you?
Julia Cherry with the Better Business Bureau says thousands have fallen victim to these scams in the past.
"Specifically, outside of the country, you will never win anything because how would you actually play?" says Cherry. "It's illegal and you don't want to get caught up in that scheme."
If you receive a letter like this, there are a few key things to look out for. Always look for spelling and grammatical errors, so read it closely.
This specific letter says 'To...

The Denver City Council on Monday rejected a proposal that would have made it easier to open social-use marijuana business.
The change would have reduced the setbacks required for venues where people can use cannabis. Currently, the “social consumption” businesses must be 1,000 feet from schools, day care facilities, addiction treatment facilities and city recreation centers.
The bill would have dropped the distances to 500 feet for every category but schools.
The bill required a supermajority — nine supporting votes — because it changed a voter-approved law. It received...

Something new that just started might mean your website needs to be updated. Any website that does not have an SSL Certificate is now marked as Not Secure by browsers. This means all websites really need to have an SSL Certificate. After all, what person would go to a website that is marked as Not Secure. This change might be a very small free change for your website. Or it might be a major change that will cost you some money. Some hosting providers, such as Godaddy, charge for an SSL Certificate. So this means you either have to pay your hosting provider a yearly fee of about $100 or you have to move your website to a new host that does not charge for an SSL Certificate. I have been telling clients if they are with a company like Godaddy that still charges for an SSL Certificate they should switch hosts. A company as big as Godaddy should not want to charge their customers for something like an SSL Certificate that many hosts are now giving for free. As always if you need direction on what you should do you can always contact me and I will be...
The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office is searching for an inmate trustee who walked away from the Oklahoma County Jail Saturday afternoon.
Officials say Paul Joshua Thompson, 23, is an inmate trustee who walked away from the Oklahoma County Jail around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Thompson was booked into the jail on March 31, 2019 by Oklahoma City Police.
After a long struggle we are back at it. The company we had been using for hosting our websites-I am nice enough not to say their name right here-kept emailing us saying we were using to many resources. They even took our daughter news website newstimepittsburgh.com down with no notice or warning. We finally found a much better company to host our websites. News Time Global is now back live with a whole different layout and with what we think is a much easier to use website. We have also changed how we do business a little bit. We will no longer have any one sided political stories. You can get all of the left sided news on CNN or right sided news on FOX. We want to be the news outlet you come to when your sick of the fake news and want real news that in most cases you will not see in the main stream media. As gate keepers of information main stream media have filled Americans with news they want them to hear. But as gate keepers here at News Time Global we want you to think and decide for yourself. We want to give you hard to find news-in one section you might find the local police blotter for a small police department in Upstate NY and in another section you might find news about a storm that hits the Rockies. We hope you enjoy our new format, new policy and new attitude. Welcome to News Time Global-NEVER ONE SIDED FAKE NEWS!
