A “flotilla” of four boats took off Friday morning from Skull Creek Marina with special crews on board for a day full of fun and learning. Graduates of the Bluffton Boys & Girls Club Explorers program boot camp were treated to the day on Beaufort County waterways by the Hilton Head Sail and Power Squadron. The Hilton Head Sail and Power Squadron is a nonprofit whose emphasis is boating safety, education and enjoyment of local waterways.
Vendors at Bluffton’s many special events will soon have less red tape to navigate under a new, simplified process approved Tuesday by Town Council. Previously, vendors were required to have a Bluffton business license, whether they were from the town or not. The event sponsor, usually a nonprofit, was responsible for tracking that information. Event sponsors will now pay a $50 permit fee and collect a $10 fee from out-of-town vendors.
They’ve renovated, restored and held the ribbon-cutting. Now Bluffton officials have some decisions to make on public access and protection of the Garvin-Garvey House. The subject was part of a brief workshop at Town Council’s July 11 meeting. Heather Colin, the town’s director of growth and management, said staff is looking for council’s feedback on procedures for use of the historic structure in Oyster Factory Park.
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".
