SOUTH BEND — For local engineers and contractors, the state’s “Next Level Roads Plan” is cause for relief and excitement — and perhaps a tinge of anxiety — after years of uncertainty surrounding public road funding in the state.The plan, supported by a recent 10-cent increase in the state gas tax and new fees on electric and hybrid vehicles, calls for $5.1 billion in road and bridge improvements over the next five years, including $70.9 million in St. Joseph County.That spells steady work...
SOUTH BEND — The Wooden Indian, the aging motel on Lincoln Way East in South Bend that has been the scene of several high-profile crimes over the past few decades — including, notably, the deadly shooting of a South Bend police officer — is for sale for the first time in more than 30 years.A handmade sign on the outside of the 55-room motel at 1631 Lincoln Way E., two blocks east of Twyckenham Drive on the St. Joseph River, reads “MOTEL For SALE BY OWNER” and includes a local phone...
SOUTH BEND — 1st Source Bank has closed its River Park branch after 71 years. The last day of business was Friday.According to Sara Jenning, assistant vice president of public relations and corporate communication for the South Bend-based bank, the age of the branch along with its proximity to other, more up-to-date locations factored into the decision.The full-service banking branch opened at the southeast corner of Mishawaka Avenue and 26th Street in 1946.
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".
