CEDAR RAPIDS — All Jake Mauer does is develop players and win ballgames. It doesn’t depend on the level. The former Cedar Rapids Kernels manager took his Double-A Chattanooga team to a first-half division championship in the Southern League. The Lookouts began second-half play Friday night with a win. Mauer managed the Kernels to four Midwest League playoff berths in his four years as skipper here. He got a deserved promotion this season and hasn’t skipped a beat. Develop players and win ballgames.
LISBON — One of the most successful prep football coaches in the area has stepped down. Kent Allison has resigned as head coach at Lisbon, he confirmed. Allison was the Lions’ boss for 18 seasons, leading the school to the 2011 Class A state championship. Allison was 150-42, taking Lisbon to the playoffs 15 times, including to the Class A quarterfinals in 2016. He had a 15-12 in three years at Boyer Valley prior to returning to Eastern Iowa. A Springville native, he graduated from Northern Iowa.
CEDAR RAPIDS — Now we wait for the inevitable. Roster changes are part of the deal in the Midwest League. Players get promoted, demoted or simply let go. The Cedar Rapids Kernels didn’t have a whole lot of movement in the first half of the Midwest League season, with 33 players seeing time here. Only 13 guys had first-half at-bats.
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".
