The United Way of Sault Ste. Marie and District is in the middle of its current fundraising campaign. The organization will continue with traditional ways of raising money, but this year a unique event is generating excitement and money for the organization. Cockroaches, tarantulas, and scorpions are some of United Way's partners this year. With it becoming increasingly difficult to raise funds for charitable organizations, the united way is thinking outside the box to raise money.
Loretta Salt was involved in a terrible accident near Pickerel River, south of Sudbury, 54 years ago. While travelling home in propeller-driven ice-vehicle, the propeller dislodged, striking her husband Ted and killing him. She was left alone, seven months pregnant, with three young kids in the middle of nowhere. "It took me three and a half, four hours to walk home from the accident and we would have been home in less than ten minutes (driving)," said Salt.
A fire closed Reggie's Place Tavern this summer and the owner said recent break-ins are delaying the bar from re-opening. "There have been seven break-ins and they stole $70,000 worth of stuff out of here," said Reggie Daigle, the bar's owner. "Everything in here I had duplicates for. My sound system, most of its gone. Then you go downstairs (and) all the coolers are broken."

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".
