The sports box at Central Park will remain a multi-use facility, after city council defeated a motion granting the Merritt Pickle Ball Club exclusive use of the facility at a special council meeting held on June 20. Council voted to 5-2 against a recommendation from staff to allow the club to use the outdoor sports box as their permanent home, which would have involved having the sports box retrofitted for pickle ball in the process. Merritt Mayor Neil Menard and Coun.
Merritt city council is considering making the multi-use lacrosse box in Central Park the exclusive home for pickle ball. Council will hear from staff at a special council meeting next Tuesday at 7 p.m., and determine whether or not to give the million dollar facility to the Merritt Pickle Ball Club for their exclusive use. Approving the club’s request would call for a $90,000 retrofit of the facility to convert it to pickle ball courts.
Chester Williams still recalls his childhood memory of seeing black police cars drive by his home in Kitwanga, B.C., complete with white doors and red cherry siren lights on the hoods. “As soon as they came on the reserve my mom would tell me to hide,” said Williams. “I didn’t understand then why, but I knew I was very frightened and every time I saw a police car I was always frightened,” said Williams who is now an RCMP constable.
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".
