Paducah will receive a $1 million grant to make what city leaders call critical repairs to its Floodwall Pump Station #2. Kentucky's Department for Local Government Commissioner Sandra Dunahoo announced the awarding of the Community Development Block Grant in Louisville Friday. “Paducah’s location at the confluence of two major rivers leads to incredible economic development and tourism opportunities", said Mayor Brandi Harless.
A California businessman owns adult businesses and other properties across the Heartland, many he's purchased in the last year or so. He's bringing in much-needed cash to a nearly a dozen Heartland towns, so why are some communities fighting against him? There's no question bringing a strip club or adult business to any town may ruffle a few feathers. Jerry Westlund owns and operates three adult businesses in Carbondale, Paducah and Poplar Bluff.
Is the mayor of Scott City overstepping his bounds? Right now, he's facing a petition to have him impeached and a call for state police to investigate. Ron Cummins said he's bringing positive changes to Scott City, and not everyone likes it. "I was elected on the basis that there needed to be change and improvement", Cummins tells me by phone. "Anytime you take action to change things, there's always resistance." "Seems like our town has gotten out of hand,” said resident Cindi Davidson Brashear.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
