An area located at the present-day intersection of Highway 79 and Sage Road figured in a case of murder — as well as the funny story of the naming of a post office — in early Riverside County history. The land was homesteaded by James Campbell Fain. Fain was born in Illinois or Indiana (depending on the source) in about 1820. It is not known exactly when he came to California, but he was already living on the land he homesteaded in May 1878, when he registered to vote.
In July 1917, Riverside County’s first contingent of soldiers drafted for World War I was called up. One man in that group was Herbert Arthur Cuttle of Armada, a town located in today’s Moreno Valley area at Perris and Alessandro boulevards. Cuttle, 26, who was more than 6 feet tall and weighed 210 pounds, passed his physical exam with the highest of ratings.
In 1925, the American Legion post in Banning decided to build a dirt oval auto racing track west of the city, near the intersection of 22nd and Wilson streets. Called the Banning Speedway in local newspapers, the half-mile raceway hosted its first race July 4 of that year. A crowd of about 800 to 1,000 people showed up to watch the race.
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".
