"We wanted to save it," said Millie Nordeen, who is a member of Prochaska's church. "It probably would have been demolished... we wanted to show you can do something with something old." A member of the Lauderdale Questers, Nordeen invited all the area Questers to have coffee at the parsonage and learn about its history in October. The Questers are an international organization focused on appreciation of antiques and restoring old buildings.
FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — It’s far more than you’d expect for a parsonage. The Rev. Dan Prochaska preaches at By the Grace of God Church in Barnum every Sunday. And every night during the week, he comes home to a restored 91-year-old church building in Fort Dodge where he lives. The sanctuary is filled with instruments, antiques, and a table for entertaining guests. A recliner sits at one side, while the open space connected with the sanctuary is set up as a living room, complete with couches and TV.
BADGER, Iowa (AP) - Three years after a group of boys presented their vision for a BMX track to the Badger City Council, the concept has gone all the way from a simple clay model to full-sized reality. The Messenger reports that several of the boys were on hand with their bikes to test out the park at a ribbon cutting ceremony held this week.Located at the north end of town, north of the city clerk’s office, it’s a much-needed fun thing for the town, said Tyler Glesne, 14.
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".
