For the first time since the award’s inception, the Kiwanis Club of Chatham Syd Kemsley Service Award was given to a couple; Derwin and Kathy Armstrong of Chatham for their hard work and dedication to support projects for the children of the world. The couple was honoured at the Sept. 13 Kiwanis dinner meeting for their years of service to mission work in remote areas, the Grandmother to Grandmother project, volunteer board work and hours put in at the Chatham-Kent Hospice gardens.
The Chatham Tennis Club held its children’s program Fun Day recently with awards, lots of pirates and tennis matches. David McKeon, upper right, runs the program and summer camps, and this fall, the program is full. McKeon said the courts on McNaughton Avenue near Tecumseh School will be resurfaced this fall, limiting the amount of court time available. Spring program begins May 12 for six weeks. Mary Beth Corcoran is a Chatham native, born and raised.
Native pollinators will have thousands more lunch stops on their daily foraging rounds, thanks to volunteers in Chatham-Kent who are planting wildflowers to save endangered insect species. Residents near Clear Creek Forest were becoming concerned as each year fewer pollinators would be seen fluttering around the park gardens. They knew that they had to act now if they wanted to prevent them from disappearing all together. The southern Ontario residents aren’t alone.
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".
