HELEN — The third most visited city in Georgia is located at the headwaters of the Chattahoochee River in White County. Alpine Helen draws more than three million visitors each year. Many of those visitors go tubing down the river between Memorial Day and Labor Day, renting tubes from Cool River Tubing and Helen Tubing. Others purchase their own tubes and go on their own. Regardless, trash in and along the river is an ongoing concern for city officials, residents and business owners.
"Yes, every one of those 21 funds on that exhibit there are balanced," Forsyth County Chief Financial Officer Dave Gruen said before the unanimous commission vote last week. The three are part of the $127.9 million general fund, the bulk of the $23.1 million fire fund and the roughly $19.8 million debt service fund. Gruen noted that the water and sewer fund, about $90.7 million, is generated entirely by user fees.
GAINESVILLE – Members of the Hall County Planning Commission admitted Monday evening that what should have been a simple decision on a rezoning request gave them more difficultly than they expected. Planning Commission Chairman Don Smallwood was about to call for a motion to adjourn Monday’s meeting moments after the two-item agenda had been completed, but before doing so he decided to make a comment. “We struggled through that first one for some reason,” Smallwood said, shaking his head.
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".
