FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Forsyth County is considering consolidating with the city of Cumming to reduce government overlap, redundancy of services and to provide relief for taxpayers. At its Jan. 9 work session, the County Commission discussed sending a resolution calling for the local delegation to the General Assembly to introduce legislation proposing the action. This would only be a request, nothing binding by the county.
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Four Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputies were hospitalized Jan. 9 after a fire broke out at 5 p.m. at the county jail. The fire occurred in a mechanical or laundry room in the basement of the detention center and was quickly controlled by the four deputies and extinguished as soon as the Forsyth County Fire Department arrived, according to Division Chief Jason Shivers. “This was on the bottom floor so the heat causes the smoke to rise,” Shivers said.
CUMMING, Ga. — During its inaugural 2018 work session, the Cumming City Council discussed a multitude of topics, but spent much of its time on the Cumming Fair Authority. At the Jan. 9 meeting, the mayor and City Council directed the city attorney to draft an ordinance to dissolve the Cumming Fair Authority and then appoint an advisory Fair Board to make recommendations to the City Council. The city would own the Fairgrounds property and control the fair budget.
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".
