JOLIET – The owners of 138.5 acres along Route 53 want Joliet to annex the land under industrial zoning, saying there is no longer any market for new homes in that area. But people who still live in the area want the city to block the plan before the situation gets any worse. Neighbors of the site filled the City Council chambers Thursday where the Plan Commission voted, 4-4, on the plan, sending it to the Joliet City Council without a recommendation. The council is expected to vote on Dec. 19.
The state’s ongoing budget problems and uncertainty over tuition aid for college students has taken a toll on Will County colleges and universities, some college administrators said. Enrollment has declined at University of St. Francis in Joliet, Lewis University in Romeoville and Joliet Junior College in the past three years.
JOLIET – Collins Street is one of Joliet’s busiest and oldest commercial corridors. Collins also now is one of three streets where businesses this year started contributing to a Special Service Area that was spread from downtown. The money in theory would be used to promote economic development and improve business conditions in the East Side business corridors that lead into downtown. Collins Street business owners have some ideas of how the city can help.
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".
