With gloomy environmental statistics and worse forecasts for future conditions, it’s rare to here some good news. But that was the case at Tuesday’s Town Board work session. Soren Dahl, an official with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), told the board that Shelter Island has the most flourishing underwater seagrass meadow in New York State. Speaking about Coelcles Harbor, Mr. Dahl said “there’s no other place left in the state like this.
Shelter Island’s next town attorney will be Bob DeStefano Jr.Mr. DeStefano, who recently resigned as chairman of the Shelter Island Republican Party, managed Supervisor-elect Gary Gerth’s successful bid for the town’s top office in November. A 1998 graduate of St. John’s University School of Law in Queens, Mr. DeStefano has been a sole practitioner for the past 10 years, mainly based in Mineola, working in the fields of regulatory compliance, zoning, commercial litigation and real estate.
Final results were released today on November 7’s close election for a Town Board seat and for supervisor. Democrat Albert Dickson kept his lead over Republican Marcus Kaasik and will be sworn into office in January as a town councilman. Mr. Kaasik led the race when the polls closed on election night, but when the absentee ballots were counted, the spread was 10 votes and it had turned in Mr. Dickson’s favor.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
