A Sedgwick County car dealer was arrested and had an earlier fine more than doubled after failing to pay a judgment for selling customers cars they couldn’t legally drive, officials said Monday. Justin Blevins was ordered on Friday to pay an extra $1,000 for failing to pay an earlier $861 in fines and court costs stemming from consumer complaints filed in December, said Avery Elofsson, chief of the Sedgwick County district attorney’s consumer protection division.
About a week from now, concealed handguns will be allowed at Wichita State University and smoking and vaping will be banned. July 1 is the implementation date for both of those new policies, one ordered by the Legislature and the other by university leaders. Across the campus, you’ll find students supporting every possible permutation: Ban guns and cigarettes, don’t ban either one, or ban one but not the other. “I think it’s kind of astounding,” said Josh Long, a WSU sophomore from Clearwater.
When it comes to being Republican, Wichita takes a back seat to no one, at least according to one national organization. Wichita’s Republican Pachyderm Club on Friday celebrated winning four top awards at the National Federation of Pachyderm Clubs’ 50th Anniversary convention last weekend in Springfield, Mo. The Wichita club won awards for “Most Outstanding Club in the Nation,” “Most Outstanding Club President” and “Highest Percentage of Club Growth” for 2015 and 2016.
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".
