LEXINGTON, Minn. — The 87-year-old woman bellied up to the bar, sipping her usual: a can of 7-Up in a beer koozie brought from home.Everyone here knows Betty Dockham. They also know that she has a corner on Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” during karaoke. (Request it at your own risk. )Dockham is a regular at the Lino Lakes American Legion hall, a short drive from her home in Lexington.
The city of Blaine plans to spend as much as $100,000 to replant trees in a wetland area after a controversial clear-cutting drew the ire of an upscale neighborhood nearby earlier this year. "I don't necessarily think that it has to be that much, but that's the maximum," said Mayor Tom Ryan. "Not a dime over." In January, a contractor cleared trees as part of restoration work on city land that's part of a 500-acre area known as the Blaine Wetland Sanctuary.
The “perfect storm” of employee turnover left the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office scrambling to fill more than 30 vacancies in recent months — the most that Sheriff James Stuart can remember in his 23 years with the county. “I’m not saying we need to be paid the best, but I think we need to be competitive,” Stuart said. Anoka County logged the highest employee turnover rate in the seven-county metro last year.
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".
