PEGGS - With a new year underway, one stewardship group met for its annual meeting on Saturday, and took the opportunity to ask questions of a state agency.The Spring Creek Coalition gathered in the Peggs Community Center to elect officers and hear from Dan Sullivan, CEO for the Grand River Dam Authority.Since the Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Commission was folded into the GRDA, the authority is one of the state agencies with jurisdiction over Spring Creek.
When it comes to barbecue, the people of Oklahoma and Tahlequah are simultaneously big fans and finicky.Just about anyone who includes meat in the diet will profess a liking for a good blend of spice, sauce and smoke, but then the disagreements arise about which ingredients in what ratios.Hence the challenge of opening a barbecue restaurant. The reserve capital needed, the property and equipment purchased, the location - it all means nothing if the sauces don't bring in the customers.
Picking up a torch once carried by a state lawmaker from Tahlequah, a newly created group wants to take redistricting power from the Oklahoma Legislature.Represent Oklahoma Inc. is seeking nonprofit status and has put up the representok.com website. The group wants to stamp out the practice of gerrymandering - drawing districts for the state Senate and House of Representatives, and the U.S. House, to favor a particular political party.
A group is trying to get a state question on the ballot to take take redistricting powers from the Oklahoma Legislature. Former State Sen. Jim Wilson wanted to end gerrymandering in the state, and has some comments in Friday's TDP. @TahlequahTDP

Check Wednesday's Daily Press for some local comment on the "Fire and Fury" book. @TahlequahTDP Still waiting for the state auditor's office to put up the TPWA audit for 2017. Hit the link and scroll to the Ts. https://t.co/GQPR2ceuQM
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".
