A Stockton park vandalized in June is seeing a rebirth as volunteers come together to fix the damage. Calvary First Assembly Church opened Heroes Park on Kelly Drive in North Stockton with a basketball court in April, but vandals destroyed the backstop and work on the park stopped. Local volunteers such as the Rotary Club and Lions stepped up with donations to help to put the park back together. It will reopen this weekend.
The city council voted to buy two adjoining buildings and the purchase will actually save the city money. The five story Waterfront Office Towers along the Downtown Marina will replace Stockton’s 91-year old City Hall. The purchase price is just over $13 million, plus another 11 million for added construction. Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs says, in the end, it will save the city $4 million over the next 20 years.
The Stockton Planning Commission has voted to allow the city’s first medical marijuana cultivation site. An 11,000 square-foot warehouse on Navy Drive was permitted for use as an indoor nursery capable of producing 1,700 pounds of cannabis annually. Doug Chloupek obtained the permit saying it would generate over $200,000 a year in taxes and discounted any uptick in crime citing a study by UCLA.
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".
