ELYRIA — Preston Curtiss would like residents to exercise a little patience when dealing with potholes this season, but he knows that probably won’t happen as craters are popping up all over the place. The brutal winter and ensuing thaw has battered Lorain County’s roads, leaving potholes aplenty. And while the official pothole repair season doesn’t begin until late spring when it’s warm enough to make hot asphalt, it’s cold patch that city crews have to turn to for quick fixes. “Be patient.
ELYRIA — A plan to replace every water meter in Elyria will soon switch gears from commercial properties to residential homes as the city moves to capture a more accurate reading of water usage. The new meters will in most cases replace meters dating back to 1997, which is the last time the city underwent a water meter replacement project, said Safety Service Director Mary Siwierka. “The water meters we use have outlived their useful life,” she said Tuesday during a presentation to City Council.
ELYRIA — Eaton Township’s loss of 36 acres of land is the city of Elyria’s gain. County commissioners on Tuesday approved a petition to annex property near Chestnut Commons into the city, a decision that brings an end to a yearlong fight that took three attempts to be successful. It was in February 2017 when developers first requested to leave the township for the city to make way for more commercial development to the area.
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".
