UPPER DARBY >> New street lamps and brighter lights are being installed throughout the township in the next two months. Mayor Thomas Micozzie announced the upgrade at a recent township council meeting of the plan to replace 4,600 existing street lights with LED street lights at a cost of $3.9 million. “A comprehensive audit and illumination study was undertaken to assess the light output of every street light that will be replaced with a LED light,” Micozzie said.
CLIFTON HEIGHTS >> The embattled owner of Hillside Nursery owner is digging out from under construction delays and clinging to hope of finally moving to new ground. Joe Batchhelder initially prepared to move earlier this year when the property owner announced plans to sell the site for a planned Wawa on the corner of Baltimore Pike and Jackson Street. “We packed up all the garden accessories in February or March when we were told we had to be out,” Batchhelder said.
(Editor's Note: It’s that time of year in Fremont County when we begin to anticipate Rodeo Week. Iowa's Championship RodeoMuseum & Fremont County History in Sidney tells the story of the Rodeo, which is celebrating it’s 94th year. One of the special exhibits is a brick entryway featuring names of supporters and volunteers and a story for each brick. This week’s View from the Attic shares one of those brick’s stories.
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".
