Waco City leaders were presented with three new potential sites for the city’s future landfill Tuesday. Consultants with an engineering firm showed council members three alternatives to the currently proposed site off Highway 84 that’s drawn much controversy. Even so, consultants said the current site was the best option for the landfill and recommended it to council, said City of Waco spokesman Larry Holze. None of the three newly presented sites were for sale, Holze said.
A big change in leadership is on the way for the City of Waco. “There’s lots of reasons, but mainly family,” Fisseler said Tuesday. Born and raised in Waco, Fisseler’s parents still live there, as well as his wife’s parents. He says he wants to take care of them and spend time with his grandchildren who live in Florida. But this isn’t his first time retiring; Fisseler first retired as the City Manager of Fort Worth before starting his career as Deputy City Manager with the City of Waco in 2011.
The former Elite Café has been designated a historic landmark property. The original restaurant opened in Waco in 1919, but the location on the circle, 2132 S. Valley Mills Drive, opened in 1941. Under their company Magnolia, Chip and Joanna Gaines bought Elite after it closed in February of 2016. The stars of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” plan to open a new restaurant called Magnolia Table at the end of the year. They are currently renovating the building.
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".
