If you’ve noticed a greater police presence on the town’s most heavily traveled roads and around some communities, chances are you have a neighbor to thank for that. In the nearly 14 months since the Fort Mill Bypass was completed, traffic congestion has eased in one of the town’s still growing areas, but there appears to be an unintended consequence. It appears that, with more room to roam, many drivers habitually exceed the 45 mile-per-hour speed limit.
Residents have two opportunities this week to help ensure that all local students will begin the new school year with backpacks full of all their essential supplies. The first is tomorrow night during the Anne Springs Close Greenway’s Summer Concert Series at the Comporium Amphitheater. Concert-goers coming out to hear featured band Mr. Nigel & Friends are asked to donated school supplies that will be be given to the Foundation for Fort Mill Schools to distribute to students in need.
If you appreciate craft beer, your local options are about to double. Amor Artis Brewing owners are working to open a downtown brewery on Main Street. It will be the second brewpub to open in the Fort Mill area, but the first one inside town limits. The farmhouse-style brewery will open in the former Dave’s Comics space and another building that juts out onto Confederate Street. Work has been underway for months to re-purpose the shop into a seven-barrel brew pub that will include patio seating.
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".
