That’s what Lisa Konicki, President of the Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce, and the owners of New England Airlines urged the New Shoreham Town Council to do against any measures the Rhode Island Airport Commission might take to shorten the runways at Westerly Airport. “Block Island should have a voice and go on the record,” said Konicki, whose Chamber services the town of Westerly, during the Council work session on Wednesday, Jan. 10.
The story of X Games freeskier champion Torin Yater-Wallace was so compelling that fellow skier and Block Island native Clayton Vila couldn’t help but turn that story into a documentary-style film that will air this weekend on ABC.
Interstate Navigation is updating its commuter card database information, and wants to let island resident commuter card holders know that vehicle registration and driver’s license information will need to be updated in person in order to secure a new card.

"The Pope of Greenwich Village" is now streaming on #Amazon Prime. This is a great, underrated, New York crime/heist/comedy with 5 beautiful performances: Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts, Daryl Hannah, the late, great Kenneth McMillan, and Geraldine Page. Just great. A real treat.
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".
