For 27 years, the annual interfaith Thanksgiving celebration in the Buffalo Grove area has brought members of local Christian and Jewish congregations together in prayer. This year's service drew a crowd of about 600 people Sunday night to Temple Chai in Long Grove. The Northwest Suburban Interfaith Council was founded in 1990 with the aim of overcoming bigotry in the suburbs after anti-Semitic graffiti was discovered on the Northwest Suburban Jewish Community Center.
It was a trip on the yellow brick road when students at Woodland Intermediate School in Gurnee performed their fall play, "The Wizard of Oz." The more than 40 fourth- and fifth-grade students that make up the cast and crew performed an early preview for their classmates on Nov. 8, which they used to prepare for public performances on Nov. 9 and 10. "This is 'The Wizard of Oz' based on the book by L. Frank Baum. It is not the musical," director April Cooksey said. "The kids have done a fantastic job.
Maintenance crews from the Wisconsin Central Ltd. Railroad worked on replacement rails Monday during railroad crossing work at Hook Drive near Route 83 in Round Lake Beach. Work began Monday and is expected to be completed by Nov. 15, barring unforeseen problems and weather conditions.

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".
