The board meets at 10 a.m. Tuesday in the board room at the Kandiyohi County Health and Human Services Building, 2200 23rd St. N.E., Willmar.The sales tax question is the first item on the agenda. After months of discussion and study, plus two public hearings held earlier this month, the County Commissioners are expected to vote on whether to go ahead with adopting the sales tax or to reject the idea.The proposed tax will generate an estimated $2.7 million a year to pay for local transportation.
The issue boiled to the fore at a meeting Tuesday night of the Willmar City Council. The council had planned to discuss a pending affiliation agreement involving the city-owned hospital, Affiliated Community Medical Centers and CentraCare Health. Instead, much of the discussion centered on the sticker shock that hit many employees when open enrollment began last week.Members of the hospital board were briefed Wednesday night with costs and numbers.
The three organizations turned to their own employees for ideas and suggestions. More than 60 were submitted from the staff of ACMC, Rice Hospital and Willmar Medical Services. A few suggestions even came from CentraCare staff.The candidates ran the gamut, said Dr. Cindy Smith, president of ACMC. Some names were conceptual.
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".
