Ken Massey made his pitch. Now it's up to the Farmington Public Schools Board of Education to make a decision. The Farmington Hills mayor, backed by consultants from Novi-based Sidock Group, Inc., and several department heads, made a presentation at Tuesday's board study session designed to demonstrate the kind of facility they envision should the board decide to sell Harrison High School to the city when it closes after the 2018-19 school year.
The development of the old 47th District Court property took another step toward reality Monday when the Farmington Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of a preliminary planned unit development plan to build 14 residential units. Farmington Hills-based Ten Mile Development Group, LLC (acting for Boji Development, Inc.) submitted the plan following the Farmington City Council's approval of its $250,000 offer for the 3.88 acres that houses the old courthouse.
Muhammed Al-Tantawi, the 16-year-old Farmington Hills resident accused of killing his mother and then dropping her out a window, will be back in court early next month. Al-Tantawi stood mute at his Dec. 21 arraignment in Oakland County Circuit Court, where Judge Martha Anderson entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf. He'll be back before Circuit Court Judge Martha Anderson for a pre-trial hearing Feb. 8. David Kramer, Al-Tantawi's attorney, said Wednesday his client continues to say he's innocent.
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".
