City staff will soon start opening a dialogue with owners of vacant properties in an attempt to address a worsening shortage of affordable housing. Staff will develop survey questions regarding why properties are vacant and other statistics that might help with developing a plan moving forward. Creating a registry of vacant residences and businesses, building an ordinance and possibly discussing an annual vacancy fee could follow.
Fort Bragg students who traveled to Otsuchi, Japan in September gave a heartwarming presentation to the City Council last week about their visit to Fort Bragg’s sister city, recounting their fondest memories and sharing photos from the trip with the community. The five students — Maya and Natalea Bazor, Sam West, Nathan Fontanilla and Jesse Yeomans — were accompanied by several adults, including Sharon Davis, Veronica Bazor and Mayor Lindy Peters.
The Fort Bragg City Council approved a change order worth about a half-million dollars last week, wrapping up the 2017 Streets and Alleys Rehabilitation project. The project, which repaired and upgraded four alleys and three streets in town, was originally budgeted at $1,384,879. Construction costs now total $1,906,435, which is $521,557 more than expected. The first three change orders for the project totaled about $36,400.
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".
