BLOOMINGTON — McLean County's new 20-year solid waste plan will include recycling ordinances after all.The county board overruled its land use committee Tuesday, restoring references to ordinances in the document, which sketches out how local leaders can get the county from 40 percent of waste recycled to 80 percent.The plan suggests first using voluntary means to improve apartment and business recycling, but, if those fail, asking local government to make landlords and businesses offer...
In letters to the City Council and public comment Tuesday night, residents asked, among other things, that the town keep three historic buildings that could be torn down to make way for the five-story structure — a promise council members were not prepared to make. "Change is hard, but we won't do anything that damages our community," responded council member Chemberly Cummings. "Be patient with us. Know that we've heard your comments, and we have you in mind. Stay with us on this journey."
NORMAL — The Bloomington-Normal Economic Development Council has work to do to win back the trust of local government officials.A few days after the McLean County Board's executive committee approved a document requesting more transparency in exchange for the nearly $100,000 it gives EDC annually, the town of Normal's staff is asking the Normal City Council to do the same — and deny part of a new request for funding.
@NormalILL All five comments touch on uptown, where folks hope the town won't allow 104, 106 and 108 E. Beaufort St. to be demolished. Some ask the town to be fiscally responsible in the development as well.
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".
