As owner of Marson’s of Colfax, Ed Marson has spent most of his life fitting pants, shirts, shoes, jackets and work boots to bodies. But now, after carrying on the family tradition and steering the city’s only men’s clothing store, himself since 1974, for Marson, it’s time to relax, travel and chase grandkids. “It’s time,” said Marson who is a third generation owner of the Main Street clothing store that was opened by his grandfather Oswald Marson in 1930.
I was excited when I temporarily became the Colfax record editor in fall 2015. It was like returning home because I had been editor here from 2005 to 2007. On my first month back two years ago, I was impressed to see Colfax residents, such as Jim Bowers, Foxey McCleary, and Tony Hesch still volunteering to make their city such a great place to call home. And in 2007, projects such as building a skate park were just a dream by a few residents and the abandoned Colfax Hotel was a downtown eyesore.
The annual 3rd of July Celebration last week was all-around winner this summer with beautiful weather and numerous activities for visitors of all ages. Kristy Brothers and the Colfax Green Machine spearheaded the successful community event, which was funded by the city of Colfax, the Green Machine’s T-shirt sales and donations. “Main Street was so crowded in the late afternoon and evening that people had to walk sideways to get around,” said Wes Heathcock, Colfax Community Services director.
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".
