July was a good month for Maysville and Stratford as the two Garvin County towns were the only municipalities in the county showing an increase in sales tax collections from one-year ago. According to the Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC), six of the eight cities in Garvin County all had a drop in sales tax disbursements in September. The September distribution of sales tax collections by the OTC primarily represents local tax receipts from July business.
Garvin County officials are warning county residents to stop moving the barricades blocking off closed roads. “It’s not only against the law, but can be dangerous to public safety,” said Garvin County District 2 Commissioner Shon Richardson. Due to the recent heavy rains, several county roads have had to be closed due to either the roads being damaged or completely washed out. Officials have barricaded all of the roads, but someone has been moving the barricades.
For two years the Main Street Pauls Valley program has been struggling to survive. As of Wednesday, the remaining MSPV board members pulled the plug on the program. “This was probably the hardest decision we’ve had to make,” MSPV Board President Jesse Alvarado told the News Star. Alvarado said there were several factors in the MSPV Board’s decision to dissolve the program, but the biggest was lack of support from the City of Pauls Valley and the community in general.
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".
