That's the take-away from Tuesday's announcement by Macomb County's sewer czar that she'd settled four lawsuits dating back to her predecessor, turning off the spigot of legal fees -- some as high as $1,115 per hour being charged by a New York law firm. "I think it's a huge step forward to clean these up by the end of the year," Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Candice Miller said.
A roadway that was closed after a sewer line collapse caused a massive Fraser sinkhole has reopened to traffic. A ribbon-cutting took place for 15 Mile RoadÂ at the site of the Christmas Eve collapse before it reopened Tuesday morning. Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Candice Miller credited engineers, construction crews and others for their contributions. The county says it's the last major step in the completion of the $75-million repair project.
FRASER, Mich. — Officials say repair work prompted by a sewer line that collapsed and caused a football field-sized sinkhole north of Detroit is expected to finish a couple days before the one-year anniversary of the massive mishap. The Macomb Daily reported Wednesday crews have just a few weeks of work left on the project along 15 Mile Road in Fraser — the site of the Christmas Eve collapse.
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".
