A lecture series on Norman Rockwell’s famous Four Freedoms paintings will be the final hurrah for a local advocacy group that shined a light on town finances while promoting civic engagement in Avon. The paintings were done in 1943 during World War II and helped promote an agenda supporting human rights by President Franklin Roosevelt. Rockwell was inspired by a speech Roosevelt gave in 1941 calling for freedom of religion and speech along with freedom from fear and want.
A sign on Huckleberry Hill Road denouncing the town is the latest episode in a long-running dispute with a resident over taking land to widen a narrow intersection. Nicholas Cecere put up that sign in front of his house at 107 Huckleberry Hill Road when the town started widening the intersection of Huckleberry Hill Road and School Street during the week of Nov. 6.
A developer has proposed building 93 apartments along with a commercial building on Cherry Brook Road in the Hart’s Corner section of town. That proposal was submitted to the town recently and the planning and zoning commission is expected to hold a hearing on it in December. The development would be at the intersection of Route 44 and Cherry Brook Road. According to the application, the site was once a gravel quarry but is now vacant.
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".
