During Monday’s city council meeting, Chris Patrie was sworn in as Elliot Lake’s newest councillor. The council seat became vacant when former councillor Scot Reinhardt submitted his resignation on Sept. 28. His resignation took effect as of Oct. 1. Reinhardt’s leave took place soon after Elliot Lake lost another councillor, Candice Martin, who resigned on Sept. 15 and was soon after replaced by Ed Pearce.
On Nov. 1, about 30 people attended city hall for a presentation on the draft budget that will guide the municipality through 2018. The budget is proposed, as Elliot Lake city council still has to approve it at an upcoming meeting. However, the draft budget is complete, and city treasurer Michael Humble hosted the Nov. 1 public meeting to inform residents, answer questions and listen to any advice regarding city spending.
On Oct. 31, Elliot Lake’s Faith Lutheran Church hosted a birthday celebration for a much loved local resident, Nelma Sillanpaa. Sillanpaa celebrated her 100th birthday among friends and family at the church. About 50 people attended the festivities, which included speeches of congratulation, a delicious choice of food, presents, and of course, birthday cake.
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".
