The work of Bartlett's plan commission and zoning board involves a level of local-government scrutiny most residents rarely consider. But when Village President Kevin Wallace suggested consolidating the two panels for efficiency, those who serve or have served on either were stirred to action. Wallace said he became concerned by low attendance among zoning board members and the effect that has had on the time frame for some project approvals.
Schaumburg officials have hired Skokie Fire Chief James Walters to lead their village's fire department after the retirement of longtime Schaumburg Fire Chief Dave Schumann on Aug. 25. Among the factors that led to the choice was Walters' leadership in a community comparable to Schaumburg in many ways, Townsend added. Skokie is also a densely populated village whose 65,000 residents are only about 10,000 fewer than Schaumburg's, he said.
As O'Hare's Pub continues settling into its new downtown Bartlett location, its owner is seeking permission for outdoor seating, live music inside and package liquor sales. When the requests came before the village board Tuesday, Trustee Raymond Deyne said the sale of package beer and wine at such a business was his main concern.
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".
