BENTONVILLE -- The conversation wasn't about whether to rebuild the dam or restore the creek at Bella Vista Lake Park. Rather, it was about dreaming what could be on the 135-acre park if it was a "clean slate," as put by one city official. Parks and Recreation Department officials gathered people to get ideas for the park during two meetings Thursday as the beginning steps for creating a plan for the area.
BENTONVILLE -- City leaders are considering charging those who live outside the city more to participate in its parks and recreational programs. David Wright, parks and recreation director, discussed with the City Council how to pay for more amenities because many of the department's programs are reaching capacity. Just a little more than 50 percent of the participants in the youth sport programs are not city residents, Wright gave as an example.
BENTONVILLE -- The manager of the Bentonville Municipal Airport says the standardized 45-year lease for developers essentially short-sells the airport's real estate value for the city. The length of the lease should depend on the amount of infrastructure the developer is going to build for the airport, Chuck Chadwick told the Airport Advisory Board and city staff members Jan. 4. Any improvements, including buildings, made on city property become the airport's after the lease ends.
Let's talk trails... some suggestions include separation between cyclists and runners/walkers, being more ADA friendly, increased connectivity to larger trail system and simply more hard and soft surface trails.
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".
