MARION - Colorful and entertaining might best describe the three performances of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" this past weekend at the Marion Cultural and Civic Center. More than 100 children from seven counties in Southern Illinois played a role - both big and small - in the musical's success. Ages of the performers ranged from kindergarten through high school senior. The lead character - Wonka - was portrayed by Kyler Ogden of Carterville, a senior at CHS.
MARION - History was made Thursday morning when Anthony L. Rinella was sworn into office as mayor, becoming the city's first new mayor in 55 years. He replaces the now-retired Robert L. Butler. Rinella had been serving as finance commissioner on the city council. By Illinois law, the finance commissioner becomes the mayor if the incumbent resigns, retires or is unable to fulfill his duties. Rinella will serve the city in his new position at least until the April 2019 election.
MARION - More than 300 friends and colleagues of Mayor Robert L. Butler turned out Tuesday afternoon for a retirement luncheon/birthday party at the Marion City Pavilion. Butler, who turned 91 and will retire from office Jan. 31, said he was "overwhelmed at what everyone has done for me." Several presentations were made to the mayor - from Gov.
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".
