SOUTHINGTON — A member of a local family who sold land to the town for open space said she’s unhappy with leases allowing farmers to use the land for portions of their operations. Elizabeth Upson Stanley spoke to the Town Council last week, urging them to clear or mow the fields and meadows less often to allow for natural growth and animal habitat. The town’s farm heritage committee has signed leases with local farmers to hay fields or continue farming on former agricultural plots.
SOUTHINGTON — A local Boy Scout hopes to build a handicap-accessible canoe launch and pathway on the Quinnipiac River near the town’s Mill Street dog park. Parker Arai, an Eagle Scout candidate, plans to construct an 8-foot-by-10-foot wooden landing and a stone walkway to help disabled people enjoy the river. His project is on the agenda for Tuesday night’s Planning and Zoning Commission meeting.
SOUTHINGTON — Two corporations recently expanded in Executive Boulevard office buildings off West Street. Late last month, Stanley Black & Decker expanded it’s headquarters at 400 Executive Boulevard. The tool and hardware company already had offices on the second and third floor of the former The Hartford office building and recently signed a lease to add 21,000 square feet on the first floor.
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".
