The City of Ottumwa recently received a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration in order to repave the main runway at the Ottumwa Regional Airport. Ottumwa Mayor Tom Lazio says the grant is just the first in a multi-year project. “The actual grant’s going to be close to 500,000 dollars. This is all preliminary work that we will be doing prior to doing the major runway 1331 and we won’t even start that until some time next year in eighteen.”Ottumwa’s Airport features two runways.
A BURN BAN IS CURRENTLY IN EFFECT FOR WAPELLO COUNTY. AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF OUR LISTENING AREA FROM NOON WEDNESDAY UNTIL 8PM ON SATURDAY, JULY 22nd. EXPECT HEAT INDEX VALUES IN THE 105-110 RANGE. Prolonged exposure to heat and humidity may lead to heat-related illness if precautions are not taken.
When authorities are called to a fire on one of the hottest days of the year, you can expect some heat related illnesses. That’s exactly what happened Thursday afternoon when the four area Fire Departments were called to the scene of a garage on fire in the 500 block of West Main Street in Fremont. Two firefighters suffered from a heat related illnesses while fighting the blaze. They were checked out by paramedics at the scene of the fire.
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".
