WINFRED, Mont. (AP) — A friend thought I was joking when I said to meet me at the Winifred International Suites/bowling alley/steakhouse/laundromat to start a Missouri Breaks adventure.It's right there across from the community center/museum/fire hall/ambulance barn/city hall/post office.The slash is key in small towns, and in Winifred, pop. 200, many of the people, like their buildings, have many roles.Unemployment is not an issue here, north of Lewistown, Frank Carr said.
FLATHEAD LAKE —A three-year quest to visit all of 54 Montana's state parks ended with a weekend trip to at Wild Horse Island. Sheryl and Randall Knowles of Great Falls began at Tower Rock State Park near Cascade on June 7, 2014. For the next three years, they crisscrossed the state checking off parks in their "Montana State Parks" guidebook (which I wrote with former Tribune reporter Erin Madison).
FORT BENTON — Remmy follows Charlie Lenington everywhere he goes. But that propensity got her into trouble this harvest. Somehow Remmy, a one-and-a-half-year-old Lab/German shepherd mix, made it past Lenington's dad Kelly and slipped into a grain bin with Lenington. Lenington checked to make sure no brooms, shovels or anything else were in the bin and shut the door. He didn't see the black dog in the dark bin. Irrigated winter wheat started pouring into the bin.
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".
