There’s a den of snakes in Tiger, and all the South should be happy about it. North Georgia’s Orianne Society is dedicated to the conservation of reptiles, amphibians and their habitat in the South and the nation, working to preserve a rich natural history of the region’s less-loved but no less important creatures. Among them is the eastern indigo snake, the largest snake in North America and a threatened species throughout its range, now mostly limited to southeastern Georgia and Florida.
The Hall County Board of Commissioners approved a tax increase to 6.7 mills from 5.716 mills for 2018. The rate was first proposed at 6.95 mills but cut at the 11th hour to 6.7 mills after commissioners cut approximately $1.5 million from next year’s budget. It didn’t spare them from a public frustrated by the tax increase, many of them who have seen their property taxes increase for years based on their assessments. Commissioners defended the tax increase as the first in more than a decade.
It’s decision time on tax increases for the Hall County Board of Commissioners. With opposition simmering on a proposed tax rate increase to 6.95 mills from 5.716, the commission is set to meet at 6 p.m. on Thursday to set its 2018 property tax rates as part of its regular meeting. Along with the tax rate, commissioners will adopt their 2018 fiscal year budget. Both the budget and tax rate are seeing increases in the next fiscal year beginning July 1.
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".
