Last week Anne Beliveau updated her gallery exhibit to a series ideal for the summer. Now showing is Louise Drescher's On The Road, a collection of acrylics and oils reminiscent of illustrations for children's books but updated for adult collectors. Beliveau is happy to display this collection, carefully curated to suit the Kootenay collector's eyes, with many mountains and winter landscapes present. "Lots of winter scenes to keep us cool during this hot spell," she says.
FILE — Dakota Fizzard looks for plants and various species on his checklist during a scavenger hunt on the Galena Bay Trail during a nature hike. (Arrow Lakes News file)July's council meeting was focused on an update on the Trails Masterplan (TMP) by Brent Harley, the president of Brent Harley and Associates, Inc.

You go there every week to pick up your groceries, chat to fellow Arrow Lakes residents, check out the specials, and plan your meals. But do you know how deeply entrenched Overwaitea is in this community? "There's a lot of things that don't get a lot of public attention but we are behind the scenes with all of them," says Todd McMullen, the store manager. He flips through a binder full of requests, organized by month, since the start of the year, before he even got here.
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".
