Charles City police with the aid of other departments took a man into custody Thursday evening after being called to do a welfare check. The Police Department took a call about 6:30 p.m. regarding a resident in the 1700 block of Missouri Avenue. Police Chief Hugh Anderson told the Press that the department was advised the man had firearms in the house and that it might be a dangerous situation.
Let’s say a young friend of the family is visiting your Kansas City home from her home in Spain, and you want to give her a taste of typical American culture. What do you do? Taking her along on a bike ride across Iowa might not spring immediately to mind, but the Housel and Davis families of various Kansas City suburbs thought, “Why not?”Roger Ramthun of Charles City played host to the group Wednesday during the RAGBRAI overnight.
Everyone knows one of the most important aspects of RAGBRAI is the food. From church dinners and roadside smoothies to Mr. Pork Chop and pie, pie, pie, bicycling across the state takes a lot of fuel. One group takes RAGBRAI cuisine to a whole new level. Team Gourmet members spend each night of the ride enjoying a meal that makes fellow bicyclists drool with envy.
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".
