Clay Township’s code enforcement officer is waiting on a decision from officials over whether to allow him to carry his concealed firearm while on the job. Jim Praught, a retired police officer, has been the township’s code enforcement officer since 2012. Earlier township leadership had OK'd the gun. The subject, however, was brought up to the current township board early this summer and.
Sally Strafford said she had just “a couple of files and an empty office” when she began running the St. Clair County Child Abuse/Neglect Council in 1984. “In about the first five minutes, I realized, ‘You’re not going to do anything unless you find a whole lot of friends,’” Strafford said. And that’s what she said has made the organization so successful – friends – helping them interview more than 200 children under the age 18 just last year and delve into prevention work year-round.
Port Huron Float Down participants have plenty of parking options on Sunday — but it might cost them. Fort Gratiot Light Station is getting in on the fun, offering places for people to park for $20 with the option of free raft inflation. That will be in an area south of the Lighthouse Beach where floaters generally take off down the St. Clair River. Port Huron Museum Executive Director Susan Bennett said it’s the third or fourth year the light station has sold parking.
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".
