After careful deliberation, we’re setting aside years of precedent and rolling out a new Best of the Bar. OK, enough of the forced legal terms. We’re making big changes to our annual program for recognizing the area’s outstanding lawyers with the intent to make it a more valuable resource to our readers. The big change is that we’re moving from a pure peer-nomination-and-selection process to one in which lawyers will fill out applications and a panel of judges will select the honorees.
Payless ShoeSource has stepped out of bankruptcy court and is looking for someone new to step into the CEO’s shoes. The Topeka-based retailer announced on Thursday that it had emerged from a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. The company sought bankruptcy protection earlier this year — part of a wave of retailers reeling from the growth of online competition. Through the process, the company said it was able to eliminate more than $435 million in funded debt.
It wasn’t another killer asteroid, but plain old business that killed off the T-Rex Cafe in Kansas City, Kan. The restaurant with life-sized animatronic dinosaurs and a prehistoric theme run wild closed its location in Legends Outlets Kansas City on Saturday, The Kansas City Star reports.

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".
