Inc. magazine has included two Camas businesses — Fuel Medical Group LLC and Excavator Rental Services — on its list of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in the country. Fuel Medical, co-founded by Brendan Ford and Shawn Parker in 2009, is listed at position No. 2,751 on the Inc. list. “It is always nice to be recognized for our growth, because it means our team is doing a lot of things right,” Ford said.
In the days following the disclosure that the massive Eagle Creek fire burning more than 35,000 acres in the Columbia River Gorge may have been sparked by a Vancouver teen’s inexplicable throwing of fireworks off a trail during one of the hottest, driest days of the summer, Camas City Administrator Pete Capell said his staff received a number of phone calls and email messages from citizens concerned about the city’s stance on fireworks.
Family and friends, as well as employees and customers, recently gathered at the Camas Dairy Queen to show their appreciation and affection for the woman who has owned the restaurant for 37 years. Wilma “Willi” McOmie, 80, received flowers, balloons, cards, cupcakes and hugs — lots of hugs — from children and adults, during an Aug. 25 retirement celebration. Willi and her husband, David, 80, are in the process of selling the Camas Dairy Queen to Dave Patton and Scott Jackson.
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".
