For both Bob Leonard and Mike LaVenture, the time to retire from their respective fire departments felt like the right move. Leonard, who served with the Dousman Fire Department for 45 years, retired as assistant chief in 2015. LaVenture, who served for 42 years, decided to step down from his position as a lieutenant at the Oconomowoc Fire Department a year later. As time went on, both missed the environment they had been a part of for so long. Then Leonard got an idea.
Chris Ireland made an impression on countless young lives in Oconomowoc by serving for years in the Oconomowoc Youth Football program. On Nov. 1, it was announced that Ireland, who died unexpectedly on Jan. 14, will be inducted into the Wisconsin All-American Youth Football League (AAYFL) Hall of Fame. The ceremony is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at Raabe Stadium on the campus of Wisconsin Lutheran College.
TOWN OF OCONOMOWOC - A body found floating in Okauchee Lake near Road J on Oct. 26 appears to have been missing its head, part of an arm and a foot, if a photo circulating on social media is to be believed. Police declined to comment about the photo, but Police Chief James Wallis said, "It does appear that the body may have been in the lake for an extended period of time." The photo shows what appears to be a male body, clad only in dark shorts.
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".
