To tell the story in the spirit of author Stewart Hyson, one might say he gleefully started a fire one January day in Hantsport. Figuratively speaking, it would be one that residents gathered around, sparked by warm exchanges of nostalgia about their own childhoods during Hyson’s book signing last month at the Dorie and Garnet McDade Heritage Centre on Main Street.
The Annapolis Valley Regional School Board (AVRSB) recently sought input on decisions about school closures on storm days, but some parents say the results haven’t brought any closure on the subject. In December, the school board conducted a brief online survey to ask stakeholders — students, parents, teachers and school community members — about school closure procedures when bad weather potentially impacts the safety of students travelling to and from school.
One of the orders of business for a new numismatic group in Windsor is to ‘coin’ its name. So far, Windsor and Area Coin Club has been suggested, but that could change, says a founding member Alex Pay and David Hickey, who both reside in Newport. “We are mostly interested in talking about and collecting currency — coins and paper money — but it could also expand to include people who also collect stamps and medals,” said Pay at the group’s first meeting in late November.
@globeandmail@danlebla@globepolitics I wonder how much of these benefits will filter down to journalists themselves. Lots of freelance reporters getting paid much less for doing much more. Not for proft defined!
@Educhatter@avrsb I could've easily written 700 x 3 more words. Parents raised many points, inc. notification, but also bus tires, their own employment, other provinces etc that report addresses. Lots of new to NS folk here question, it answers some beyond what SBs provide, before Lib gov.

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".
