Clarksville Town Council president Paul Fetter reiterated on Tuesday that the decision to remove and kill 236 Canada geese from the town's municipal complex hall was made for health and safety reasons. Earlier this year, the town hired a state-approved animal control company to trap, kill and cremate the geese in front of the complex on Veterans Parkway near Interstate 65. The decision was met with criticism from some members of the town council, residents and also from human rights activists.
Blaze Pizza, a California-based build-your-own-pizza chain, announced Monday that the company will be opening its first Southern Indiana location in Clarksville. The newly announced location is set to open next spring in the Veterans Crossing development, located at 1225 Veterans Square, according to a press release.
A decision to kill more than 200 Canada geese in a Southern Indiana town has citizens, animal activists and town leaders squawking, but the town council's president says the killings were the "only effective solution" to mitigate the health and safety hazards presented by the birds. In some ways, Clarksville brought the problem on itself. When it opened its municipal complex in 1995, the geese were drawn to its two man-made ponds, which serve as water basins.
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".
