The city planning commission is looking at ways to make downtown Myrtle Beach more family friendly. (Source: Lisa Gresci)MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach city leaders and long-time business owners alike will say the city is what it is today because it was known as a family-friendly destination. Now, there's a push to keep that reputation. According to city manager John Pederson, the biggest criticism regarding the downtown area is that it is not a "family-friendly environment."
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – For Myrtle Beach city officials, the way to improve the reputation of areas like the downtown Superblock is to fix it up. That very topic was discussed during an open-table talk at Wednesday’s meeting of the Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation. Myrtle Beach City Manager John Pederson noted that people haven’t liked what has happened in the downtown over the last 10 years. To revitalize it, different strategies are required, he added.

This is a day that you get your badge. It's the day that you work towards. It's the day you are actually a police officer,” Myrtle Beach Police Capt. Joey Crosby said as he looked at a photo of officers swearing into service.
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".
