ALEXANDRIA – The ongoing saga of an effort to dissolve the village of Alexandria progressed this week, as a petition to put the issue on an election ballot included more than enough signatures of registered voters. Licking County Board of Elections Director Brian Mead said Wednesday the petition of 149 signatures was found to have 130 be valid, far more than the 84 required. The ruling from the board of elections does not guarantee the issue will ever appear before voters, however.
NEWARK – Yellow Cab has suspended its operations in Newark until it puts a new management team in place, owner Jerry Williams said. Williams said a management issue forced the temporary closure of the local office at 147 S. 21st St., and suspension of services. The company should be back in business by Monday, he said. "We decided to shut it down two days ago," Williams said on Thursday. "We're trying to get everything for this weekend and start over with a whole different group."
NEWARK – Licking County planned to file a lawsuit against three pharmaceutical wholesale distributors of opioids, but Common Pleas Court Judge Tom Marcelain refused Tuesday to approve the use of outside counsel. Licking County Commissioner Tim Bubb said the county will be unable to join with other Ohio counties in a federal lawsuit against McKeason Corp., Cardinal Health, Inc. and AmerisourceBergen Drug Corp. because outside counsel is essential to prosecute the case.
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".
