CRYSTAL LAKE – Not a single person who spoke Tuesday night at a meeting of the Community High School District 155 Board was in favor of a tax levy increase. Everyone who stepped to the podium was against it. Dave Mazurk, a 35-year resident of Crystal Lake, wants to remain here. “But I’m afraid I may not be able to, the way property taxes are going up,” Mazurk said before the board’s vote. But the board still passed, with a 4-3 vote, an estimated levy increase of 2.44 percent.
CRYSTAL LAKE – Laurie Stewart and Nelly Chmiel took their time Wednesday enjoying a Thanksgiving dinner a day early at The Salvation Army in Crystal Lake. They were two of many to stop by the organization’s annual Thanksgiving dinner. People from throughout the Crystal Lake area donated food and their time – either serving, setting up or greeting guests. This was the third annual community Thanksgiving dinner held by the group.
CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Elementary School District 47 Board approved a tentative property tax levy that asks for more than the previous year. It’s not the only Crystal Lake-based school district to ask for an increase. The Community High School District 155 Board approved a $75,795,782 tax levy request Tuesday with a $1.2 million debt service abatement that drops the actual levy request to $74,595,782.
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".
