DuBOIS — An owner of several Sandy Township rental properties questioned water and sewer rates at Monday’s supervisors’ meeting.“I have found that the water and sewer rates are really high,” said Barry Miller, of Treasure Lake, who owns a rental property in Treasure Lake and one on Pentz Run Avenue.“I know that’s the feeling of a lot of people in Sandy Township, I can’t give you names,” Miller said. “I know it’s something that you folks are aware of, that they seem to be high.
DuBOIS — Sandy Township Manager Dave Monella said he hears complaints constantly from residents about high sewage and water rates.“Unfortunately, daily. Unfortunately, that absorbs probably 75 percent of my day right now with that exact question,” Monella said in response to the concerns voiced by Barry Miller at Monday’s board meeting.“I do feel for everybody out there,” Monella said.
DuBOIS — Motivational speaker Brooks Gibbs, a nationally recognized social skills educator, told sixth- and seventh-graders at the DuBois Area Middle School Tuesday that when he was a kid he was really short, suffered from allergies and had asthma attacks when playing Nintendo.“I felt like a loser,” Gibbs said. “And every time kids would make fun of me, I’d get upset. If they excluded me from their cool group, I’d get upset. If they called me a mean name, I’d get upset.
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".
