SAN ANGELO — Situated snugly between the South Concho River and the shady hills 15 minutes south of San Angelo, Christoval Vineyards and Winery has become popular with locals and a destination for wine enthusiasts touring Texas. The 25-acre property is reminiscent of a little French village, and it features an impressive wedding chapel and a tasting room, offering views of the grapevines that run the length of the estate.
One of San Angelo’s native sons just launched a new literary project, with the aim of funding new libraries for schools in Kenya. Writer, director, actor and philanthropist Turk Pipkin, a member of Central High School’s Class of 1971, said his "Book of Every Other Month Club" will send subscribers six original works over the course of a year. Pipkin, in a phone interview from his headquarters in Austin on Wednesday, spoke about how the effort came about.
As the morning fog lifted from the Parade Grounds at 630 S. Oakes Street Thursday, local media representatives were treated to a sneak peek at this year’s Christmas at Old Fort Concho celebration, set for Dec. 1-3 in San Angelo. The year’s event will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the fort's founding on Dec. 4, 1867, and organizers are pulling out all the stops to make this the grandest Christmas to date.
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".
