Mark Felix, chairman of the Stephenville town council’s finance committee, brought down his first budget on Thursday, but it had dissenters at the table. While the 2018 balanced budget of projected revenue of $8,444,915 and expenditures of the same amount features no tax or fee increases, Coun. Mike Tobin said there should have been a modest decrease in the mill rate.
Mark Felix said it was disappointing to him there was no public consultation with users of Indian Head Park before work began on its redevelopment. He said at Thursday’s regular general meeting of council that’s why he was voting against a permit for the redevelopment of the former Indian Head Park at 200 Massachusetts Drive. Felix said he had a number of calls on Thursday morning from people concerned about work already taking place there, with people not informed about it.
It was cold and lonesome at times, but Sarah Butt is still determined to draw more attention to the issue of open-net fish farming in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Corner Brook resident and graduate of the fish and wildlife program at the College of the North Atlantic, and who is planning to pursue a degree in marine biology at Memorial University, is opposed to the practice of commercially raising Atlantic salmon in open nets.
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".
