After a groundswell of local opposition to its proposed $320 million poultry complex south of Tonganoxie, Tyson Foods Inc. has put the project on hold. In an open letter to the Leavenworth County community on Tuesday afternoon, Doug Ramsey, president of poultry for the meat-producing giant (NYSE: TSN) based in Springdale, Ark., said it made the decision after the Leavenworth County Commission's vote to rescind a resolution of intent to issue industrial revenue bonds for the project.
Leavenworth County Commissioners on Monday wondered how Tyson Foods Inc. could plan to start work on a $320 million poultry complex in 90 days even though it hasn't yet filed for rezoning with the county. Someone in the audience suggested that the firm may have reason to believe it can declare the operation an agricultural rather than an industrial use to avoid rezoning.
On the heels of selling its first building in 56 Commerce Center, Minneapolis-based Opus Group has announced the start of its second in the new Olathe industrial park. Earlier this month, Orizon Aerostructures announced that it would move its area manufacturing plant from North Kansas City to the 205,000-square-foot building that kicked off development in the park at Old 56 Highway and Lone Elm Road. Now, Opus is working on a 230,122-square-foot building in the park.
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".
