Three challengers looking to unseat Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes deeply criticized on Wednesday a development project that he has championed this year. The project would put a library and children’s museum, run by Columbia-based EdVenture, on multiple parcels downtown that the Downtown Redevelopment Corp. bought through a broker earlier this year. The DRC is a nonprofit arm of the City of Myrtle Beach.
Three candidates have filed to fill the General Assembly seat left open by former S.C. Rep. Mike Ryhal, R-Horry, who resigned this year. Ryhal said in his resignation letter in August that he was leaving due to family issues. He had served since 2014. [S.C. State Representative resigns due to ‘family issues’] Tim McGinnis, Adam Miller and Dwyer Scott will face off in the Oct. 24 contest for the GOP nomination. No Democrats filed to run by the Sept. 2 deadline.
This spring, business looked promising in Myrtle Beach. Sales were surging at places like The Gay Dolphin Gift Cove, which has occupied the space at 916 N. Ocean Blvd. since the middle of last century. Owner Buzz Plyler said that in the spring, revenue was tracking more than 20 percent above last year. “That is an astoundingly high amount for a 70-year-old business in any location,” Plyler said. Several other businesses on Ocean Boulevard and some hotels also reported a strong spring to The Sun News.
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".
