Elgin Classic Little League's Intermediate 50/70 all-star team is heading to Michigan this weekend with an eye toward California. That's because the team of 12- and 13-year-olds captured the state title and is heading to the regional in Kalamazoo starting Saturday. A championship there earns Classic the Central Regional title and a berth in the 50/70 Little League World Series later this month in Livermore, California.
A 67-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after a domestic incident involving a female juvenile, Elgin police said. Police responded at about 8:25 a.m. to the 1200 block of Asbury Court, found the victim and took her to an area hospital, police said in a Facebook post. Officers attempted to make contact with the man, who was still in the residence, and were told he was armed with a handgun. Officers from the Elgin SWAT team were called, as police continued negotiating with the man.
Writing is a family affair for Reggie Kee and his 9-year-old son, Josiah, who are having a joint book release party Saturday in Elgin. Reggie Kee, who publishes under the pen name "Reggie Legend," wrote his second book, about hip-hop in the context of God as the foundation for all music; Josiah wrote his first book, a children's tale about the adventures of a kid named Johnny. Both are self-published. The two projects happened to come about at the same time, they said.
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".
