A proposal to rebuild James Brown Arena at the vacant Regency Mall site lives on after an Augusta Commission committee tied 2-2 on votes for and against prolonging negotiations. Commissioner Dennis Williams made the motion to disapprove, while Commissioner Andrew Jefferson made a substitute motion to approve it.
A citizen complaint about a closed meeting that preceded the Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority’s vote to accept a deal to build an arena at Regency Mall won’t be mediated by the Georgia Attorney General’s office. The city commission voted down the controversial deal with mall owner Cardinal Management last week, but supporters continue to push and a motion to cement Regency as the site and to continue negotiations with Cardinal goes for a commission committee vote Tuesday.
An effort led by Augusta’s mayor to build a new arena at a blighted mall outside of downtown was voted down by the Augusta Commission last week, but the push seems far from over. Observers continue to speculate whether the vote actually ends negotiations with mall owner Cardinal Management. The attorney currently handling those negotiations said he likely won’t give an opinion about it until the end of January.
Committee votes for and against extending Regency Mall arena negotiations just both tied. D Williams and Mary Davis against, M Williams and Jefferson in favor of Regency. Goes back to full commission without a recommendation.
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".
