Now, there are more options for those special occasions. Kim and Doug Harms are offering chair and table rentals in Creston, the only business in the Union County area with special occasion seating. Kim and Doug, formerly of Nebraska, moved to Creston about three years ago. Doug, who works as a locomotive engineer with the railroad, moved a little earlier. The couple has been contemplating starting the business for some time.
The Creston Chamber of Commerce and Southern Prairie YMCA are teaming up to fundraise for the upcoming Creston Hot Air Balloon Days next month. “The Y brought it to us and asked if we would be interested in partnering with them, and so we said, ‘Sure,’” said Ellen Gerharz, director of the Creston Chamber of Commerce. “The baggie drop is a fundraiser for the Balloon Days committee and the Southern Prairie YMCA,” said YMCA Office Manager Raquel Linch.
After some internal debate about when I wanted to write this, I figured I should just get it out of the way now, as it’ll be even more difficult the longer I put it off. The time has come for me to, as they say, move on. In reality, I’m not really going anywhere, but I will no longer be striking the keys at a Creston News Advertiser computer. I am starting a new chapter in Lenox, where I have accepted a position as EMT.
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".
