Chatham County Commissioners are getting a clearer picture of how much impact Tropical Storm Irma had on residents county-wide - from dollar amounts to resources being used. The Chatham Emergency Management Agency's director and the County's public works director gave presentations and fielded questions from Commissioners today. County Manager Lee Smith told us earlier this week, that thanks to previous tax increases for certain services, county funds will still be in good shape following Irma.
Earlier this month, Chatham County Commission voted to adopt budget recommendations to fund a stand-alone county police department. For the first time since that meeting, we're hearing from Chatham County Commission Chairman Al Scott about the budget changes and what that means for taxpayers from your wallet to your security. The tax increase to fund the new county police department will come from the special service district, the unincorporated part of the county.
The Savannah business owner was shot to death while walking home with his wife. Kevin Reid's family made the decision to close the art gallery shortly after he was killed and even though it's been vacant for the better part of the past year, the storefront is a constant reminder for those who called him a friend or the impact he had on their lives. "It has been pretty hard," said Alexandre Darbousset, Owner, Le Cafe Gourmet. "We really miss him a lot because he was part of our life.
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".
