JOLIET – The city-owned baseball stadium in the future will be named Joliet Route 66 stadium, city officials said Friday. The unveiling of the new name along with an artist's image of what it will look like happened Friday at the Route 66 Miles of Possibility Conference being held in Joliet. "This is international branding," Joliet Economic Development Director Steve Jones told the conference, noting the appeal that Route 66 has for tourists in other countries.
JOLIET – A panel formed in March in response to forecasts of future groundwater shortages met for the first time last week. Among the topics of discussion was whether to change its name from Environmental & Refuse Commission. "I'd like to come up with a title for the commission which better reflects what we will be doing," said Maria Rafac, an architect and instructor at Joliet Junior College who is one of seven members of the commission appointed in February.
JOLIET – An "unwritten practice" of lifting caps on unpaid vacation time contributed to a $104,000 retirement payout to a Joliet department head, Interim City Manager Marty Shanahan said Friday. Shanahan said the practice was stopped in July, and city employees no longer can accumulate unlimited vacation time to be paid at retirement. "It was something that was never really put into writing," Shanahan said. "It was just allowed to happen."
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".
