The 2018 Sportsman Day at Spencer-Van Etten High School is just a few weeks away and the events are coming together rapidly. This year’s date for the show is the weekend of Feb. 3, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Feb. 4, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Doug Thornton, advisor to the high school’s SVE Sportsman Club, leads the students in putting on this huge show that features free admission for both patrons and vendors. Donations are appreciated (look for the big boot when you enter) but are not required.
The extra-busy season for the S-VE Community Food Cupboard may be past, now that the two big food holidays are over, but ongoing needs to eat are not. With all this dreadfully cold weather, folks are going to be paying more for fuel bills and will have less to spend on food. An easy and enjoyable way to donate to the Food Cupboard’s daily needs is to get your supper at one of the Spencer-Candor Lions Club winter fundraising dinners.
Christmas evening was not a happy one for Wanda Grunberg’s family. Around 9 p.m. a fire broke out in their home, which is also part of the Log Inn Bed and Breakfast complex on La Rue Road in South Danby, just over the Spencer line (but in the S-VE school district). The Brooktondale Fire Department responded but called for additional tankers from several area departments, including Spencer. It was bitterly cold and they contained the fire to just the house, saving the garage.
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".
