City council approved the idea of a multi-use pathway on the north side of Centre Street in St. Thomas. The narrow, two-lane street would fulfill the cycling and trails master plan’s objective of getting a pathway in the downtown without disturbing the pace of Talbot Street. “This is exactly what I think we need,” said Coun. Steve Wookey. “Any kind of trail system that we can get going east- west will be a major asset.”The new path would connect existing pathways with the citywide trail network.
Discussion around the reference committee table was directed towards the city’s transit system after a presentation by city engineer Justin Lawrence. Lawrence said council had to decide whether the city would sign a three year contract extension with Voyageur, the provider of transit services in St. Thomas. Lawrence said there were some significant cost pressures due to Bill 148, Fair Workplace Better Jobs Act, 2017. Voyageur expects to have a 21 per cent wage increase.
Four years after Timken Canada closed its doors in St. Thomas, the city is taking its name off the Timken Community Centre and replacing it with a hockey hero’s instead. City council has decided to change the name to the Joe Thornton Community Centre in honour of the St. Thomas-raised NHLer, considered by some the greatest passer in hockey history. “We think it’s wonderful. It’s an honour,” said Thornton’s mother, Mary.
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".
