Bob and Beverley Spooner well remember their wedding day on July 27, 1957. These memories were shared exactly 60 years later, as they gathered with family — three children, five grandchildren, Beverley said — for a special dinner in Cobourg. Their wedding ceremony took place at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Hespeler — a town that is no more, Bob noted, since it amalgamated with Galt and Preston in 1973 to form the city of Cambridge.
Only a few days remain for Cobourg businesses to have their say on the Waterfront User Needs survey tailored specifically to their interests. Cobourg director of parks, recreation, culture and tourism Dean Hustwick hopes they will take the time by the July 31 deadline to ensure their input is part of the process. This is the third round of surveys, Hustwick noted in an interview, starting with a resounding success on surveys of individuals. “What’s astonishing is, there were 2,000 responses.
When the Town of Cobourg purchased Northam Industrial Park 14 years ago, it picked a million-dollar winner, Cobourg council learned this week from reports prepared by treasurer Ian Davey. In fact, the $14-million mortgage has only $820,035.67 remaining, Davey added, and it should be paid off by March 2018. There have been challenges over the years, Davey said, particularly in 2008 when the financial markets collapsed. Now, he anticipates 100% occupancy by the end of the year.
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".
