With about $90 million in deferred maintenance, the Redmond School District may ask voters to approve a bond to help pay for it. The district will host a series of forums over the next few weeks to inform the community about its needs, but a general maintenance bond is a long way from reality. Staff would have to recommend the bond to the school board; the board would have to approve it for a ballot, and then voters would have to pass the bond in an election.
Bend-La Pine Schools staff proposed a land swap that would provide a site for the new high school at Tuesday evening’s school board meeting. The school district is considering swapping its approximately 50-acre plot in southeast Bend just east of Bend Golf & Country Club with about 80 acres of land J.L. Ward Company owns nearby, at the northwest corner of Knott Road and 15th Street. The proposal would still need to be approved by the school board.
The terror a few Bend residents experienced Sunday night inside a theater in Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas was eased by the police on scene, who helped keep about 1,000 people calm while a gunman, taking aim from floors above them, shot people outside. “It was horrific to say the least,” said Jon Kunkler, of Bend, who was stuck overnight in a locked-down Mandalay Bay theater.
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".
