The Clarence Town Board rejected plans for a nine-unit subdivision on the site of the Clarence U-Pick Blueberry Farm on Shimerville Road. But board members stressed after the meeting that the decision had nothing to to with the loss of blueberries. The plan does not meet town codes, they said. The proposal would have landlocked one of two houses on the 36-acre lot if the owner, Damian Baird, removed the blueberry farm and built four homes on the farm lot.
After rejecting the option for years, the Clarence Town Board is considering leasing light duty work vehicles and small transportation vans instead of buying new ones. Highway Superintendent James A. Dussing said at the board's meeting Wednesday that the town has 21 vehicles it tries to replace on a revolving three-year cycle. But even with the trade-in, the town will not be able to afford a new senior van next year, he said.
The City of Tonawanda hopes to erect a 16-foot-tall abstract metal sculpture that pays tribute to the Erie Canal on top of the covered canal if supporters can raise $50,000 to $60,000. The city's Visual and Performing Arts Council has commissioned sculptor Henry J. Schmidt to create a sculpture called "The Canal Remembered" that would sit in Niawanda Park along the Niagara River.
.@Nate_McMurray said he will have town meetings to listen to people if he is chosen 27th District Congressman. He said "Chris Collins is not doing a good job....This is a guy that needs to get beat... We are not fooled... Congress is not a country club and we need to change that.
"You can pull yourself up by your boot straps, but first you have to have boots to do that" said Democratic candidate for 27th District Congressman @Nate_McMurray" We need to pull together. Our country needs it." https://t.co/ZGEKtrHugx
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".
