County council could vote next week whether or not to grant a 10-year tax abatement for a proposed commercial development in Hanover Twp. and Nanticoke. NorthPoint Development, a Missouri-based industrial development firm, plans to build three large commercial structures on the 330-acre parcel off state Route 29 and Kosciuszko Street, which the firm says would create 1,300 to 2,000 jobs. NorthPoint has reached a preliminary agreement to purchase the land from the nonprofit Earth Conservancy.
Non-unionized employees of the Luzerne County court system received a 3 percent raise in paychecks issued Friday, according to county court administrator Michael Shucosky. The raise for more than 90 employees of the court administration, probation and domestic relations departments is overdue, Shucosky said. Courts employees not represented by unions last received a percentage-based raise eight years ago, though they received a fixed $1,500 pay increase in 2014, he said.
Developer Robert Tamburro says his latest project is caught up in a Catch-22. Tamburro plans to build a retail complex on the site of the former Valley Crest nursing home in Plains Twp. His company purchased the 62-acre site, off Route 315 near the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, from Luzerne County in 2015. Tamburro on Tuesday said he has had discussions with potential corporate tenants about leasing space at the proposed shopping complex.
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".
