The Canadian Country Music Heritage Society (CCMHS) wants the City of Merritt to put a little TLC into the Country Music Capital of Canada — in particular, the log archway it gifted the municipality years ago. “We put it up and turned it over to the city [about] 15 years ago,” CCMHS president Ron Sanders told the Herald. “It could easily be improved [and] embellished — maybe some lights.”Sanders brought the idea to city council’s attention at a recent committee of the whole meeting.
Merritt city council is sending a warning to the owners of all local hotels, motels and taxi companies to do their part to reduce drug trafficking in the community. “We’ve got a drug issue in town and we just want all the hotels and some of the businesses that deal with these people to know that if they are they should stop and if not then something’s going to happen,” Merritt Mayor Neil Menard told the Herald.
The City of Merritt is still able to enforce a fire sprinkler bylaw initially believed to have been rendered toothless by an expiring grace period following the adoption of the provincial Building Act in 2015. Last fall, Fire Chief Dave Tomkinson submitted a report to city council which misinterpreted a Dec. 15 deadline as marking an end to the enforcement of a local fire sprinkler regulation additional to the building act.
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".
