The Second Annual Gentle Shepherd Soapbox Derby held on Saturday saw a major jump in participation. At the first Gentle Shepherd Soapbox Derby last summer, the event attracted 47 young soapbox racers between the ages of five and 11 years. However, this past Saturday the event drew 83 racers. The young racers began rolling down the hill on Lisbon Road with four soapbox cars at a time being let out of the gate.
The newest business in the Pearson Plaza food court hosted its grand opening on Friday. Chantis Fresh Cafe, a coffee/sandwich shop, opened on Wednesday in the plaza’s food court, but hosted its ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday. Chantis is owned by Jib and Debby Turner. The couple also owns Turners Elliot Lake, the 7,000-square-foot general merchandise store in the Pearson Plaza, which opened in December of 2016.
An Elliot Lake woman would like to thank her rescuer, but she only has his first name. Diana Graham-Vail, age 82 and with a mobility problem, says in the early evening of June 30, her husband Jim dropped her off in their driveway as he had to run back downtown on an errand. As she made her way up the few steps to the patio, she tripped and fell facedown. Because of her mobility problem, and without her cane, she was unable get up. “I was just sprawled out like a frog on the patio,” Graham-Vail says.
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".
