Pet and Wildlife Rescue (PAWR) officials say they don’t have the funding to send personnel out to retrieve live animals for their care. This in response to a recent letter to the editor in The Chatham Voice, and a host of online comments on a local social media site. Racheal Smith, in an Aug. 17 letter to the editor, which was addressed to two municipal councillors, was surprised to learn PAWR didn’t pick up animals in distress.
For the 10th straight year, the VON will host a butterfly release celebration of life. This year’s event takes place Aug. 27 at 1 p.m. at Veterans’ Gardens on Thames Street in Chatham. Blair Klonteig, fund developer and community relations co-ordinator for the VON in Chatham-Kent, said just over 100 monarch butterflies will be released in memory of lost loved ones.
When your father-in-law has a green thumb and he’s willing to share his seeds, how can you say no? That’s what happened for Paige Craievich, who saw huge success in her garden this year at her home on Pine Line. It was the first year she got serious with vegetable gardening, and saw the results immediately. Paige used the seeds from father-in-law Jake Craievich, whose Maryknoll Road garden in Chatham produced a 2.5-pound tomato last year, and was highlighted in The Chatham Voice.
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".
