Use of the Meals on Wheels program has grown since Eau Claire County began operating its own kitchen late last year. County-employed cooks began making meals for homebound seniors from a Fall Creek kitchen on Dec. 11, and increasing demand is prompting consideration of additional staffing. “This data clearly shows a direct correlation between program growth and when we began operating the central kitchen,” a county memo stated.
A 23-year-old Eau Claire man is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl and sending nude photos of a woman to other people. Joshua J. Weichert, 3104 Garner St., faces nine felony counts, including sexual assault of a child, sexual exploitation of a child, possession of child pornography and distributing intimate images without a person’s consent. If found guilty of the most serious of those charges, Weichert could face up to 40 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.
Eau Claire’s business community withdrew its support for a state bill that would allow the city to charge additional hotel and restaurant taxes to fund tourism-related projects, and sponsors of the legislation also are pulling back. The Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce pulled its backing of the bill this week, deciding it too hastily signed onto the proposal and needs more input from area businesses before supporting similar legislation in the future.
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".
