Amarillo Independent School District took a step Monday toward purchasing the old Hastings distribution center on Plains Boulevard for a new science, technology, engineering and math program. The board of trustees voted 4-1 to approve buying the building — near The Galleries at Sunset Center and diagonal to Wills Elementary School — which was left vacant after media retailer Hastings Entertainment filed bankruptcy and closed all of its stores in 2016.
A grass fire burning in Potter County engulfed a home and another structure before moving into a field where crews are trying to stop its spread, Amarillo Fire Department Capt. Larry Davis said. The fire started sometime this afternoon in the area of Paloma and Tierra drives north of Amarillo, burning buildings nearby and moving eastward and eventually jumping over Western Street, Davis said.
The Bushland Independent School District Board of Trustees voted 6-0 Wednesday night to name Chris Wigington as the lone finalist for superintendent. Wigington, who is currently the superintendent at Big Spring ISD, is set to replace Don Wood, who is retiring. Per state law, the board must wait 21 days before they can finalize the selection. Board President Holly Jeffreys said the board would meet for the final vote on Dec. 7. She said he wouldn’t assume the position until January.
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".
