The weather cooperated nicely this weekend for a major project at Inspire, the former Spencer Grange. The light blue exterior had deteriorated and was in need of a new paint job. Director Teri Bunce put out a call for volunteers, and on Saturday, the south and east walls were painted. On Sunday, the north and west walls were painted. It was a huge volunteer effort, but the results look great. Slow down the next time you drive by and admire the new slate-gray exterior.
Local taxpayers are always happy to have a new business open to help lighten the tax load. Van Etten’s newest business is owned by Fran Rose, a hairstylist who has lived and worked in S-VE for many years. Fran has branched out on her own in a new beauty salon called Vibe Hair Studio. Vibe is next to Rodman’s Service Center, between it and the laundromat on state Route 224. Many people may know Fran from an earlier salon in her own home, or more recently at Transitions in Van Etten.
The citizens of Van Etten have an important decision to make. On Aug. 2, the electorate submitted a petition with 139 signatures asking the village board to dissolve the village. After reviewing and certifying the signatures, the village board was required legally to schedule a referendum on dissolution, which is set for Nov. 13.
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".
