Seven road construction projects in Naperville are among the hundreds that could be suspended or terminated in Illinois if lawmakers do not approve a new state budget by July 1. "Due to the General Assembly's refusal to pass a budget, (the Illinois Department of Transportation) loses its ability to pay contractors starting July 1," IDOT spokesman Guy Tridgell said via email.
It's all but certain he won't have to close his doors, but Naperville businessman J. Pandya says no longer being able to sell Powerball or Mega Millions lottery tickets absolutely will hurt his bottom line. "It's going to affect traffic here," said Pandya, who owns the 7-Eleven convenience food store near Diehl Road and Route 59. "When people come in to buy lottery tickets, they're also buying snack items, something to eat or something to drink."
A service station at the intersection of 75th Street and Rickert Drive in central Naperville is in line for a makeover, with a larger, modernized station proposed that would have more gasoline pumps, a new drive-thru car wash and a bigger convenience food store. Members of the Naperville Planning and Zoning Commission, in a 6-0 vote Wednesday night, backed the proposal by TrueNorth Energy to replace the Shell station at 1295 Rickert Drive.
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".
