They say it’s always the people around you that either makes a job great or pain to get up for each and every morning. For the past three and a half years, I’ve had the opportunity and pleasure to be the Regional Editor for the Leduc Rep, Beaumont News, Devon Dispatch and the Leduc-Wetaskiwin County Market. For a total of more than six years I’ve covered the stories that have affected Leduc, Leduc County and the area.
The Leduc Chrysler midget AAA Oil Kings season may have not ended with a 2017 Telus Cup championship, but it was one for the ages. The Telus Cup wrapped up on Sunday, April 30 with the Cape Breton Islanders taking home the championship in thrilling fashion — a 5-4 overtime comeback win over Saint-Francois. For the Oil Kings they narrowly missed out on qualifying for the semi-finals, as they fell 6-3 to Saint-Francois on Friday, April 28 diminishing any hope for that semi-final berth.
Leduc County set to take part in a number of summer parades Leduc County will take part in eight parades beginning Saturday, June 3 with the annual Black Gold Rodeo. They also may take part in the annual K-Days parade in Edmonton in late July. No decision was made during a regular council meeting on April 11. The theme for the 2017 parades will be ‘celebrating 150 years’ to honour Canada’s 150th anniversary.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
