Though not a Yankton native, Dr. Joan Wink has a special place in her heart for the town. A former professor and author of several books, she is keeping herself occupied with her new position on the South Dakota Board of Regents. Originally from Mobridge, Wink came to Yankton to attend Yankton College in 1962. The decision was made purely from the advice of her United Church of Christ minister, Roger Grow, who was also the father of her good friend, Kathy Grow, a long-time Yankton resident.
His owner, Yankton first-grader Charlie Dooley, knows this because he created him. Anyone interested in having their own Leo can do so by visiting Budsies.com, a website that takes artwork and turns it into a plushie toy. The plushies are then available for pre-order for a two-week period. If the plushie reaches its goal of a certain amount of pre-orders, it will then be distributed.
This has been a major concern since it was revealed during last month’s school board meeting that the work on Crane-Youngworth wouldn’t be complete by its original end date of Aug. 4. While there is still much work to be done, Kevin Bender of Welfl Construction said he was optimistic that enough of the field would be completed in time for the first Yankton High School home football game Sept 8.
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".
