DAVENPORT — A lot has changed since Billy Oertel founded Oertel Sheet Metal in 1988.Celebrating its 30th year, the company has grown from a two-man operation to more than 40 employees, and moved two years ago to a new 36,000-square-foot facility on the 9400 block of Zenith Road.As similar businesses have folded, the company has continued to add more services, so much so that it has taken on a new name, Oertel Metal Works.
A Davenport commissioner, citing a busy schedule, has resigned more than eight months after he was found to have followed a city employee into the first-floor women's bathroom at City Hall.Surveillance footage provided to the Quad-City Times by the city captured Bishop Jimmie Horton, a longtime member of the Affirmative Action Commission, walking into the women's bathroom on April 24, 2017, shortly after Civil Rights Director Latrice Lacey.
Former Davenport Fire Chief Lynn Washburn will have to wait a little longer to find out if she can return to the fire department.Washburn's attorney, Mike Carroll, and Richard Davidson, an attorney representing the city of Davenport, presented arguments Tuesday on the motions to dismiss an appeal of the Civil Service Commission order that would reinstate her to the department.On Nov. 8, the Civil Service Commission issued an order to reinstate Washburn as a district chief.
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".
