Property owner in the bulls-eye concerned about relocationRon Inskeep knew Longmont was planning to build a transit hub on his property in the First Avenue area of downtown Longmont, but the plans are a little more real now that the city is estimating costs down to the dollar. The transit hub would be a bus transfer station with a parking structure and three sites of transit-oriented development — possibly apartment buildings, office space and retail.
Longmont is seeking people to serve on boards and commissions. There are vacancies on the Art in Public Places Commission, the Board of Environmental Affairs, the Cable Trust Board, the Callahan House Advisory Board, the Golf Course Advisory board, the Historic Preservation Commission, the Housing and Human Services Advisory Board, the Housing Authority board, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Senior Citizens Advisory Board.
Registration is open for free coding classes for children at the Longmont Public Library. Kids will work with QuestBotics products. QuestBotics makes robots that children can program by placing cubes, called Qubes, into slots. Children ages 6 to 10 years old can take "Intro to Coding with Qubes" from 1 to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Parents of children under 8 years old should plan to stay with their child throughout the class, according to a Library news release.
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".
