Members of the Barrington Dance Ensemble (BDE) once again are preparing for their annual presentation of "The Nutcracker," which will be the 23rd year of this acclaimed local production. Weekends at the studio are alive with young dancers and guest artists, rehearsing Tschaikowsky's immortal music. The 80 student dancers from the northwest suburbs in this year's production include 15 from our northern Barrington area – a few of them are "veterans" of BDE productions.
A wave of shock and sorrow was felt by both members and friends of Citizens for Conservation (CFC) following news that Tom Vanderpoel had passed away Aug. 8.

The Brooklyn Hospital Center will have a new leader, some 10 months after its former president and chief executive announced he was resigning to join a private-equity firm. In November, Gary Terrinoni will succeed Dr. Richard Becker, who stepped down in March. Dr. Becker earned $1.5 million at the hospital in 2013. Mr. Terrinoni currently is executive vice president of administration and chief financial officer of the Kennedy Health System, a Voorhees, N.J.-based three-hospital network.
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".
