The Town of Creighton will get a helping hand with a pair of projects. Town council was informed at their Wednesday, July 12 meeting that two funding requests through the provincial Northern Capital Grant program have been approved. The town will receive just over $92,000 for two new boilers at the Creighton Sportex as well as $25,600 for new fire turnout gear units. Town administrator Paula Muench estimated the grants would cover 80 per cent of the town’s expenses on the purchases.
Former Flin Flon Bombers Brandon Switzer and Joseph Leonidas will soon be hitting the books. Switzer agreed to a scholarship offer in late May with the University of Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves.

Switzer, 21, played two seasons with the Bombers, racking up 106 points in 88 games and adding 23 points in 23 playoff games.
Gerry Angell’s business usually booms in the summer. Now he’s literally trying to stay above water. Angell, who runs Angell’s Marina on Amisk Lake in Denare Beach, is dealing with abnormally high water levels that have flooded part of his business. Last week he was wearing rubber boots to get around his marina shop, which is usually three feet above the water line. The floor was at least a foot underwater. “There’s nothing we can do,” said Angell.
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".
