More than 200 Iowans will join half-a-million people Friday in the nation's capitol to protest abortion at the largest anti-abortion rally in the country, organizers said. Dozens of people from Iowa organizations drove more than 20 hours on buses to Washington, D.C., to call for an end to abortion at the March for Life, an annual rally that began in the hopes of overturning of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court's 1973 decision to legalize abortion.
A 20-year-old man who last week broke into vehicles in Pleasant Hill, stole four handguns and shot at one of the gun owners and later sold the weapons has been arrested, authorities said.

Pleasant Hill Blvd., stole a firearm and shot at the gun's owner when the owner confronted him, police said Thursday.
VINTON, Ia. — More than 24 hours after hundreds of animals were taken from an eastern Iowa home, veterinarians and others were still counting and evaluating them Wednesday to get a handle on the rescue. Also on Wednesday, the homeowner denied that the animals were malnourished or otherwise neglected. Preston Moore, director of the Cedar Valley Humane Society, said that the shelter has never brought in more animals at once in its 117-year history.
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".
