A petition to recall Madeira Beach commissioners Nancy Oakley and John Douthirt, who both won a hotly contested election earlier this year, was filed with the city clerk Nov. 8. “We had 480 signatures for Nancy Oakley,” said Robert Preston, Pres. of Respect Mad Beach. “We had 469 signatures for John Douthirt.”The recall committee only needed 331 signatures, which is 10 percent of registered voters in the city. Preston said he got extra signatures because some are usually tossed for various reasons.
A robbery suspect made the mistake of thinking great grandmother Mary Barrineau, 82, who walks with a cane, would make for an easy target as she was leaving a Tarpon Springs bank on Monday. “I walked out with my cane, she looked at all that, so, she thought I was weak,” Barrineau said.
A Largo resident dealing with city-owned trees in front of her home that were damaged by Hurricane Irma was forced to reach out to the mayor and city commission directly after the city failed to return her calls. Bonnie Klees said the two trees in front of her home left a significant amount of debris following the storm. "It was like 10 feet high and I had to pay $800 for somebody to come and pile it up," Klees told us.
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".
