Making sidewalks contiguous in Newport Heights means the removal of several dozen trees — a change that has some residents unhappy. Sandy Verkerk, who lives on Riverside Avenue, laments the loss of several towering eucalyptus and other trees along 15th Street as part of a sidewalk project that she said was discussed too quietly. Most streets in the neighborhood don’t have sidewalks, although 15th does on its north side, as well as sporadically on its south.
Newport Beach sewer rates are moving closer to their first increase in more than 10 years. City utilities staff presented an updated proposed rate schedule to the City Council on Tuesday that showed the typical household bill going up by about $2.35 a month next year. Sewer rates have not been adjusted since 2006, leaving the city wastewater fund at a structural deficit, said municipal operations director George Murdoch.
One of Fountain Valley’s disabled groundwater wells is back up and running. Contract workers completed repairs on the well at Warner Avenue and Newhope Street on Wednesday, said city Public Works director Mark Lewis. The well went offline in June after developing pumping issues. The city now has three of its six wells in operation, plus a connection to the Metropolitan Water District in nearby Garden Grove.
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".
