Pickleball enthusiasts hope to see more tournaments in Ruidoso. Toward that goal, they donated $14,000 to the village Parks and Recreation to add to a fund dedicated to construction of courts designed for the sport. Andy Carter, who said he’s lived in Ruidoso nearly 19 years, began playing pickleball about five years ago. The game that uses a paddle, is open to all ages and is played on a small court the size of badminton court, he told village councilors at their meeting last week.
The fiscal year closed out with a slight increase in lodgers tax collections over the previous year at $1.473 million, a new record, Tourism Director Gina Kelley reported to Ruidoso Village councilors. The tax is charged against nightly rentals in hotels, motels, cabins, lodges, recreational vehicle parks and private homes. As a tourist-based town, nightly rentals are big business in Ruidoso. “Public relations efforts yielded huge results,”Kelley wrote in a summary.
T-shirts are included in the registration fee“Run for the Mountain,” a fall morning of exercise surrounded by spectacular scenery, also will function as a fundraiser for the Lincoln County Medical Center’s scholarship and community causes program. The fun 5K Run/Walk will kick off at 8 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 30, at The Links Walking Path, 685 Hull Road in Ruidoso. Registration and T-shirt pick up will be from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 27, in the hospital conference room 211 Sudderth Drive.
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".
