Vitro Architectural Glass, Wichita Falls, and Burkburnett are being recognized for an expansion project that's been years in the works. A lot has changed at the plant since February when ground was broken on a $55 million project for a large jumbo coater, a machine that makes glass for large buildings. On Thursday, it was recognized as the best economic expansion in Texas for a city with a population of 100,000 to 250,000. It has city leaders and the company excited for the future.
Every year head lice spread throughout schools causing problems for parents, students, and teachers. But the state is doing something about it. A new law that went into effect this year requires schools to notify the parents of the entire grade or homeroom of each student that has head lice. Wichita Falls ISD Healthcare Coordinator, Debi Mills, said the district is in compliance and has always followed the state law.
Wichita County Commissioners have been working on a project to bring a weigh station to U.S. 287, west of Iowa Park, for many months. Now they are almost ready to put it out for bid. Wichita County Judge, Woody Gossom, said they hope to begin that process in October or November, and then bid it out at the beginning of next year. Judge Gossom said the project was delayed due to a high demand for local contractors finishing up other major projects.
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".
