The Bowie City Council approved a detailed site plan for a five-story, 388-unit apartment building that will be part of the Melford business-retail-residential complex on Tuesday night. The vote on approval of the plan was 5-1, with District 1 council member Michael Esteve casting the dissenting vote. The plan now moves along for consideration at the county level, a process which is expected to take 8-10 months, according to representatives for the developer, St. John Properties.
Other might opt for an exercise room. Or a closet. James Wallace IV, a 13-year-old aspiring Eagle Scout from Bowie, is using the extra space in his family’s home as a shoe warehouse. He’s got almost 500 pairs in there -- and they’re not even his shoes. He’s collecting them as part of the requirements he needs to fulfill to become an Eagle Scout. He hopes to collect 1,500 pairs of shoes over the next 2 ½ months and donate them to an organization called Soles4Souls.
The City of Bowie will hold a special election on March 12 to fill the vacant District 2 seat on the city council. The open seat was created by the recall of council member Diane Polangin on Dec. 19. The winning candidate in the special election will serve on the council until the next regular city election in November of 2019. Two polling places will be set up in District 2 – the same spots used in the recall election and the regular city elections.
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".
