The winter holidays are filled with traditions — perhaps none more iconic than the annual Radio City Rockettes’ Christmas Spectacular in New York City. Since 1933, the precision dance troupe has performed at Radio City Music Hall during the weeks leading up to Christmas and one of Kansas City’s own — Mindy Moeller, a 2007 Blue Valley graduate — is among the elite dance group’s ranks. Moeller, 28, is in her sixth season as a Rockette, one of the most coveted dance jobs in the performing world.
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” -Roger Caras, writer & photographer Many of Kansas City’s top professional athletes surely agree with Roger Caras’ assessment. While the cheers (and sometimes boos) from fans that accompany every move on the gridiron, diamond, or soccer pitch are fleeting, Sporting Kansas City midfielder Roger Espinoza and Royals catcher Drew Butera are among dozens of local pros with ever-loyal adoring fans at home.
It’s a home run for The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City (The J)!

The Baseball Tomorrow Fund is a joint initiative of Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
