Mount Vernon has so far spent $4,595,952 on its failed renovation of Memorial Field. The city's Comptroller Deborah Reynolds calculated the figure in a memo delivered to the City Council last month. Virtually all the $3.4 million advanced to Mount Vernon by Westchester County has been spent. The rest of the spending was with money that Mount Vernon borrowed for the renovation.
MOUNT VERNON - An unfinished war memorial stalled for years may finally get done. City officials are considering spending about $46,000 to finish the Gold Star Mothers Monument in Hartley Park, which was begun in 2006. Work on it halted around 2011 and only partially resumed in 2017. The monument honors mothers whose children died while in the military fighting a war.
YONKERS - Public school officials project a $46 million budget gap for July 1 and they're calling on parents to escalate their appeals to state officials for more money. In his preliminary budget, Superintendent Edwin Quezada said he projects $623 million in expenses and only $577 million in revenue. The revenue is mostly in the form of state aid and Yonkers property taxes. "That $623 million is only a status-quo budget," Quezada told the Board of Education's Audit, Budget and Finance Committee.
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".
