The A.R.Wilson Graniterock Quarry in Aromas held its tenth annual Rock and Run fundraiser. The event benefits Aromas School but it is also a unique opportunity to see and learn about the 117-year-old, crushed granite rock quarry up close. The 5K walk/run and 10K run raised $20,000 on Oct 9.
Aromas residents say speeding vehicles are making their town dangerous and they want to see changes. “It used to be a quiet, peaceful walk in nature, and now it’s a stressful, ever vigilant attempt at exercising,” Nancy Olson said. She added, “Every day, and for around twenty years, two to four of us walk at 3:45 in the afternoon on nearly the entire stretch of Carpenteria Rd. “We park our cars at Rea Ct. and continue from there to San Juan Rd.
According to Wendy Elder and other committee members, the fair was organized for the citizens of Aromas, and featured locally grown produce and other educational booths that promoted the community’s resilience and self-reliance. “Our goal is to transition away from dependence on fossil fuels toward lower-energy, lower-carbon, environmentally and economically sustainable ways of doing things,” as stated in the information supplied by Transition Aromas.
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".
