"I think that we have a travesty." said Governor Jim Justice. And with that, Governor Justice announced he would not sign this years state budget, because it cuts too deeply into many state programs. "I can't possibly sign this now, because of the pain that it's going to cause," said Gov. Jim Justice, (D) West Virginia. The governor again had white boards filled with all the things that will not get done or be fully-funded. But Republicans say the main thing is there will be no government shutdown.
BOONE COUNTY, WV (WOWK) - In all the 20 day session cost taxpayers approximately 700,000 dollars, but one West Virginia Delegate says he is donating the money he was paid in the special session. Boone County Delegate Rodney Miller says he could not accept his salary in good conscience, so he started donating his pay to various community charities, including a veterans group and a food pantry.
Tourism leaders and Governor Justice were hoping for nearly 6 million more dollars to promote state tourism and business in the coming year. But that money failed to make the final budget, and there is great disappointment. "West Virginia's a gorgeous state, blessed with natural resources, blessed with great convention centers. But, we need to get the word out. It's not 'If you build it they will come,' we need to tell them about it," said Alisa Bailey, Charleston, Convention & Visitors Bureau.
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".
