The Fire Department received $3,550 in grant funds Friday from the Arkansas Fire Prevention Commission to use toward fire prevention and education programs. Arkansas is among the five states with the highest number of fire deaths each year, according to a news release from city Fire Marshal John Pflasterer. Through its prevention and education efforts, the department aims to make the city safer from fire hazards, according to the news release.
Voters in the former Gray Township that includes Jacksonville and part of Sherwood approved allowing the sale of alcohol by the drink in a special election Tuesday, opening up the ability to attract restaurants that want to serve alcohol. Overturning the 60-year-old alcohol ban in the now-defunct Gray Township affects the majority of Jacksonville and the portion of Sherwood north of Maryland Avenue.
The cities of Jacksonville and Sherwood -- which want to expand economic development opportunities-- have jointly campaigned to overturn an alcohol ban from about 60 years ago during a special election scheduled for today. Eligible people will be asked to vote for or against the sale of alcoholic beverages and on-premises consumption within the defunct Gray Township voting district that overlaps Sherwood and Jacksonville. Polls will be open from 7:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. today.
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".
