Twenty-five years ago, in 1992, according to the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) the Escambia County Commission faces nearly $250,000 in unbudgeted expenditures before the fiscal year even begins. While some people suggested using some utility money, it was noted that the utilities Board puts at least $120,000 into the city’s budget annually.
Twenty-five years ago, in 1992, it seems we were concerned over another hurricane. Hurricane Andrew had hit the Louisiana Gulf Coast and Swift Supply of Atmore, along with others, were getting together building supplies to take to Morgan City to help out with the recovery process. It makes one think about all the storms that seem to come our way. Thank goodness they spread out somewhat and don’t all take the same route into the Gulf. It makes me think about this year.
Twenty-five years ago, in 1992, Dan Quayle’s name came up in an opinion poll in Atmore. It seems the majority of those people interviewed thought that Dan Quayle should be replaced by someone else to run on the ticket with President George Bush. My guess is that some of you won’t even know who Dan Quayle is, but for those of us who have been around a while remember him well. Apparently he and the president had some issues and did not agree on things as much as everyone thought they should.
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".
