The Town of Whitecourt has approved its 2017 Enhancement Grant for four community groups, costing a total of $28,370.23. Director of community services Chelsea Grande and Dave Arcand, vice chair of the community services advisory board, spoke to town council about the allotment at its May 23 meeting. “The enhancement grant is to support recreation, arts (and) cultural groups, or groups that are enhancing their program with recreation, arts (and) cultural programming,” Grande said.
The Northern Gateway Public School (NGPS) board hosted an all-day workshop with superintendents, principals and trustees on May 25 to work on updating last year’s three-year plan. “Contained in the plan are the key strategies that will be pursued in the coming three years, performance measures to gauge their progress and financial statement of operations,” said Leslee Jodry, the assistant superintendent, who presented near the beginning of the day.
In fact, rodeo is a family tradition of sorts for Ness, 25, who participated in the annual Mayerthorpe Rodeo on May 27 at the town’s Exhibition Centre. “My family grew up rodeoing. I had some uncles who rode bulls and I rode steers as a kid,” he said, adding that he began to take rodeo especially seriously after he stopped playing hockey competitively. Ness emphasized that the event is a consistent source of entertainment for locals, not just in Mayerthorpe but throughout Alberta.
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".
