Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds will not be available to assist Creston Community School District with two potential projects like CCSD Business Manager Billie Jo Greene had hoped. Greene updated the CCSD Board of Directors on the situation during Monday’s regularly scheduled board meeting. Greene had hoped to secure FEMA funding for a two-part project.
The Snow Down Ice Fishing Tournament is back, and this year the event will be bigger and better. The second annual event, held at Twelve Mile Lake, is organized by Adam Randall of Creston, an avid ice fisherman. Randall paired up with High Lakes Outdoor Alliance to host the event last year, but this year is operating as a one-man show. This year’s event includes a banquet at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2, at the Eagles Lodge in Creston.
I recently dusted off my passport and traveled back across the pond to visit my sister and her family for Christmas in London. It was a trip I had been itching to make since I first went to visit her in October 2016. Now that I’ve had some time to reflect on the trip, I thought I’d write about some of the things I’ve found interesting from my two trips to London.
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".
