City of Lawton officials expect to have a crane in place today to lift a tanker car out of the ground on the site of the city's new public safety facility on Railroad Street. City administrators said they knew a tank was in the ground of what had been a railroad yard in an industrial area just east of downtown, an area that dates nearly to the city's beginnings. But, they were surprised this week to learn that what they thought was a tank was something much larger a rail tanker car.
The extensive work associated with the Southwest 52nd Street expansion project has meant a mass of activity on and around the west Lawton arterial. Parts of the $6.1 million road construction project by T&G Construction have been under way for weeks as the City of Lawton and the construction firm continue a project that, by its end in late 2018, will expand Southwest 52nd Street into three lanes between West Gore Boulevard and the railroad tracks one-half mile to the south.
Adjustments made to Lawton's mass transit system are helping to reduce wear and tear on buses, but managers say they want more time to fully assess the effects of the changes. McDonald Transit Associates made the adjustments on LATS routes July 19, trimming service on Saturdays and changing access to Fort Sill from a fixed route bus to an on-demand van as part of its efforts to lessen strain on the system's aging fleet.
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".
