KUSA - Colorado State University received grant funding to research a newly discovered disease that's affecting corn crops in Colorado and other states. Bacterial leaf streak, caused by the bacteria Xanthomonas vasicola pv vasculorum, was officially discovered in the United States last year. "We also started noticing quite a bit of spread and dispersal in the end of the 2016 production year," said Kirk Broders Assistant professor of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management.
GLENWOOD SPRINGS - Someone slashed the tires on nearly all of the government vehicles at the U.S. Army Recruiting Station in Glenwood Springs.

Destruction of government property is a federal offense with penalties varying depending on the amount of damage caused. Glenwood Springs police say they have no leads in the case.
WASHINGTON - A Colorado Springs man was among three survivors from the USS Arizona welcomed at the White House Friday. The trip to the nation's capital was a first for Donald Stratton, of Colorado Springs, Ken Potts, and Lauren Bruner. All of them survived the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. They hope to obtain official recognition and secure a posthumous award for Joe George, the sailor who saved six men, including Stratton after their ship took a direct hit.
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".
