ROCK SPRINGS, Wis. (WMTV) Flooding is a pest, but one that people in Rock Springs have learned to live with. "It's going to probably come up to my steps," bar owner, Kevin Rose explains. He says he isn't too worried about the flooding taking place on the Baraboo River in Rock Springs, because nothing will compare to the flood they were hit with in 2008. "We were closed down from June to October," he says. His bar was hit with 53 inches of water, which left $150,000 in damage.
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- It takes a lot of help to pull off a PGA Champions golf tournament, and American Family Insurance says they couldn't have done it this weekend without their volunteers. "We have grown faster than expected which is great and means the community is behind us," Tournament Director, Nate Prokrass said. Prokrass says the 948 volunteers were crucial to the steady flow of the tournament. "It's the best way to get those volunteer hours," Volunteer Tonya Gnewikow said.
SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (WMTV) -- A 6-year-old boy from Sun Prairie took a writing assignment from school and turned it into a reality.

"I didn't know anything about it until he brought it home and it was all complete," Liam's mom, Penny Clark said. She read the letter, and decided they would mail it to the mayor.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
