The City of Abilene and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will be co-sponsoring the Trout Derby this year on February 17. The free event is fun for the whole family and will run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The Trout Derby will take place at the Neighborhood Fishin’ Program site at Grover Nelson Park’s Small Pond. Trout stockings began in late November and will continue through March. Over 500 trout will be stocked in the back pond. The Small Pond is located at 1000 Zoo Lane in Abilene.
A winter weather advisory was put in place overnight as Sweetwater woke to winter’s deep chill this morning. Despite the forecast for snow flurries, strong winds and freezing rain, the area escaped the brunt of a storm that is giving the rest of the country a winter headache. A large swath of the country is under a winter storm watch, with a system covering much of the East Coast.
Martin Luther King was a man of peace. A follower of Ghandi’s non-violent activism, he used the Christian teachings of love and forgiveness along with Ghandi’s peaceful protest and civil disobedience to sever the chains of racism and segregation that had long held the country from moving forward. It is ironic that an act of violence took him from this world fifty years ago this year. Dr. King was many things to many people. He was both revered and feared. He was loved and hated.
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".
