A wreck prevented Colorado Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne from arriving Saturday at a health care town hall scheduled in Glenwood Springs, but the event went on. About two dozen people, many of them health-care professionals, gathered for the event, which Lynne joined via telephone. Lynne is running for governor in the 2018 race, and her background includes 28 years in health care. “Health care is the No. 1 issue that not only people in Colorado are concerned about, but people around the nation,” Lynne said.
The Glenwood Railroad Museum remains open through Monday. Sunday will feature a reception with cookies and hot cider from 3 to 4 p.m. The Glenwood Railroad Museum will close for good at the end of its post-Thanksgiving weekend shift. The museum, which is open Friday to Monday, was unable to reach a lease agreement with landlord Union Pacific Railroad Company for space in the Amtrak Station on Seventh Street.
Colorado natives have a leg up on transplants, in many ways. At least, that's my perspective as a still newcomer to the area. Coloradans seem pre-programmed with an appreciation for the outdoors. The state is one of the healthiest in the union. And the lung capacity that accompanies life at altitude doesn't hurt, either. Make no mistake, I don't care to bash my home state of Alabama. I'll even stick up for Florida, the state of my raising, on occasion.
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".
