STANTON — Branden Peterman has a complicated relationship with his pickup truck. Branden was convicted of using his Dodge Dakota to assault his former best friend, Todd Papendick, in a dispute over Branden’s ex-wife, Carrie Peterman. In the days before Branden’s sentencing, Todd and Carrie allegedly placed a GPS on Branden’s truck to track him. The GPS resulted in Branden being caught violating his bond by entering a local bar and drinking half a beer.
FERRIS TOWNSHIP — The longtime Ferris Township clerk is accused of embezzling up to $20,000 from her own municipality. Tamara Jo Mortensen, 53, of Vestaburg, is charged with two counts of embezzling from Ferris Township — a possible five-year prison felony. She has pleaded not guilty and was bound over from Montcalm County’s 64B District Court to Montcalm County’s 8th Judicial Circuit Court, where she was arraigned Thursday.
STANTON — A year and a half ago, Montcalm County’s troubled budget situation was dragged into the light — and that light was blinding. To the shock and dismay of county residents — and, allegedly, county officials themselves — the county was unknowingly blowing through millions per year in savings. Annual audits of the county show abnormal ways of overseeing taxpayer dollars more than a decade ago, which appeared to become the norm as the years went by.
Butler has already hired Eldore Herman Jr. of Saginaw and Anthony Mrzlack of Grand Rapids to fill two positions. Mrzlack left the Montcalm County Prosecutor's Office for Ionia County and Montcalm County has already replaced Mrzlack by hiring Victoria Gilchrist. #prosecutornews
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".
