SUGAR GROVE – As a telephone operator at Illinois Bell and AT&T for 33 years, Lillie “Lil” Adams spoke to countless people on the phone, including actress Kim Novak, who starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo,” and Michael Jordan, who most consider the greatest basketball player of all time. Adams was great in her own right and you’d be hard-pressed to find a Sugar Grove resident who didn’t know her or crossed paths with her at the Sugar Grove Township Community Building.
SUGAR GROVE – Getting to the Kaneland Board of Education meeting was challenging, but by incorporating some speed walking during her route through the halls of Kaneland Harter Middle School, Mary Doranski made it there just in time. Who would’ve expected otherwise from Doranski, who is, after all, a challenge teacher at Blackberry Creek Elementary School in Elburn.
SUGAR GROVE – While summer salads might feel a lifetime away during this polar-like winter it doesn’t have to stop people from enjoying some local food and goods directly from farmers and producers. That’s what those who are promoting and participating in the Wintermarket Farmer and Vendor Fair are hoping for when it resumes on Jan. 13 at the Sugar Grove Public Library, 125 Municipal Drive, Sugar Grove.
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".
