Reading that Marion County is in the top 10 percent of Ohio counties for opioid use, left me speechless. No, I haven’t had my head stuck in the sand about the drug problem in the area, but I believed our drug task force was making progress in the number of arrests. And yes, I’m aware of many overdoses, but thought that number was decreasing as well. I, for one, refuse strong pain medications unless absolutely necessary for a few days — I don’t like the out of body feeling I’ve experienced.
Hopefully, before you went to bed last night you set your clocks ahead one hour. If not, you may arrive at church in time to sing the closing hymn or hear the pastor give the benediction. Yes, Daylight Savings Time begins today, meaning you will have one more hour of daylight at the end of the day or the beginning of your day, whichever way you decide to look at it.
I am perplexed, confused, astonished, befuddled, mystified – whatever adjective you choose to use. That is how I feel about the controversy over the clerk position in Marion. My opinion, the position of clerk is as important as those who have been elected by voters. The clerk is responsible for keeping complete and accurate meeting minutes, codes, and other business conducted by council. The controversy seems to be: should the position be part-time or full-time?
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".
