Booze will be banned on regional buses starting in June. The Roaring Fork Transportation Authority’s board of directors Thursday made good on a previous pledge to ban consumption of alcohol. It comes on the heels of the board’s decision in February to beef up security on buses and bus stops. The board voted unanimously Thursday to prohibit open containers of alcohol on buses. “For me this is really common sense,” said Pitkin County Commissioner and RFTA board Chairman George Newman.
Multiple jurisdictions in the Roaring Fork Valley are going to determine this spring if they can get on the same path regarding use of electric bikes on paved trails. There is a hodgepodge of management currently on the Rio Grande Trail, the heavily used route down the spine of the valley. Roaring Fork Transportation Authority and Glenwood Springs allow use of e-bikes as does Aspen. Pitkin County Open Space and Trails prohibits them. RFTA manages the Rio Grande from Glenwood to the Emma schoolhouse.
Aspen Skiing Co.’s headquarters at the Aspen Business Center and auxiliary office in Basalt will go dark for two weeks after ski season. Skico President and CEO Mike Kaplan has ordered all full-time, year-round employees to take a two-week vacation from April 23 through May 4 as a cost-cutting measure and opportunity to “disconnect and recharge,” according to Jeff Hanle, vice president of communications. “It’s not an unpaid vacation. It’s not a furlough,” Hanle said.
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".
