A Lee County judge dismissed a case between the City of Cape Coral and the Matlacha Civic Association. The group on Matlacha filed suit against the city in January of last year, fighting the annexation of land on Pine Island Road. Some people on Matlacha said businesses could suffer if the city moves forward with the annexation. "I think it was a mistake to dismiss it for sure," said Renata Jeffers.
NBC2 is tracking your tax dollars in Cape Coral, where the city is saving nearly $27 million in interest on bonds it owes. Cape Coral refinanced $248 million it owed in water and sewer bonds. The move will save $26.9 million in interest that would have been paid out over several years. The city's finance department closed the deal on Dec. 27th, just as crews prepared to work on the utility expansion projects, and ahead of major tax reform.
A Florida Highway Patrol trooper who died on the job 50 years ago will forever be remembered on a major road. Cpl. Joseph Bertrand died after being shot by a driver he thought was under the influence. Troopers dedicated a piece of SR-80 to his memory. Several troopers, FHP's colonel, and Commissioner Cecil Pendergrass got together at the agency's headquarters to remember Bertrand. The sign will stand on SR-80, east of the Franklin Lock near Alva.
Frost accumulated overnight in #Arcadia, right next to some citrus groves. Farmers say it's alright since it didn't stick to the trees, but tonight's colder temps are the ones to watch. @NBC2https://t.co/lB1rU0jD6G
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".
