To fix conditions that caused a lawn-watering ban last summer, the Brandon City Council authorized the creation of a volunteer committee. The 14-member Brandon Water Development Committee that will be led by Alderman Don Wells was approved Monday, Nov. 6, at the city council’s regular meeting. Wells said the focus will be on moving forward and not rehashing mistakes.
Instead of a large future rate hike at Brandon Golf Course, the Brandon City Council formed a consensus Monday, Nov. 6, at its regular meeting for a 3 percent increase this year. Rates were not raised over the last three years, according to Brandon Golf Course General Manager Zane Swenson. “As you know, our expenses at the golf course don’t freeze, and if you look at our prices compared to our competitors, we’re pretty good,” he said.
A resident living near the corner of Sunset Drive and west Fifth Street spoke out Monday, Nov. 6, at the Dell Rapids City Council’s regular meeting about her rusty water. “After five different times draining a 60-gallon water heater, I finally have clean water,” said Amanda Peterson. “That water heater’s only been there since 2005. There is no reason it should have that much rust piled in the bottom of that thing. It’s not a single residence issue.
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".
