The Backhouse name has been restored to a place of honour at the Backus Heritage Conservation Area. The Backus Historic Village has been renamed the Backhouse Historic Site. “The experts have suggested that we go back to that name to attract more visitors,” says Delhi Coun. Mike Columbus, chair of the Long Point Region Conservation Authority. The heritage site was settled by the Backhouse family in the late 18th century. Family members later shortened their name to Backus.
There’s more to the new sewage treatment plant in Delhi than meets the eye. The state-of-the-art facility is, in fact, an award-winning feat of engineering. Norfolk County and its construction partners took on a difficult project several years ago when they set to work building a new sewage treatment plant on Western Avenue. The project team had a limited amount of land to work with. As well, they had to build the new facility while keeping adequate treatment capacity in place at all times.
Delhi Coun. Mike Columbus is back in the saddle again at the Long Point Region Conservation Authority. Port Rowan Coun. Noel Haydt was nominated for a second term as chair of the LPRCA at the authority’s inaugural meeting of 2018 Wednesday but declined to allow his name to stand. Haydt had a busy year in the chair through 2017. Friday, Haydt said he can better serve the needs of his constituents as a regular board member rather than as moderator of board discussions and proceedings.

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".
