A crowd of about 75 people showed up at Colt Creek State Park to witness the groundbreaking for a new campground that will cater to RV enthusiasts. Up until now, all of the camping had been primitive camping at a few sites within the 5,026-acre park in Green Swamp north of Lakeland. Although a campground had always been in the park’s master plan, people credit Paula Dockery, founder of the Friends of Colt Creek State Park, for keeping it on state officials’ radar.
Tom Palmer @ledgertom I saw my first Everglades python on a recent trip.It was dead, apparently the victim of road kill along U.S. 27 near the Krome Avenue turnoff.I’ve been following the organized python hunts down there.The results don’t appear to have put a big dent in the estimated wild population, but by the time the hunts began it was probably too late to affect much anyway, as I pointed out in this space at the time.Nevertheless, any reduction in the Everglades python population is a...
Rain Raises Peace; Arbuckle Parking Ban The steady rain this month has finally raised the level and flow in the Upper Peace River to the point where it may be navigable again, according to provisional figures posted on the USGS Realtime Streamflow site. It’s a good idea to check conditions downstream for obstructions.
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".
