The Missoula County sheriff has ordered the immediate evacuation of about 160 homes on either side of Highway 12 west of Lolo, from mile marker 20 (Bear Creek) to Fort Fizzle. The evacuation is mandatory. In addition, another 140 homes are now on an evacuation warning and residents should be ready to leave on very short notice, the sheriff said. The warning area includes homes from Fort Fizzle to Balsam Root Road on both sides of Highway 12.
At nightfall Friday, air quality was unhealthy across the Missoula Valley and about to become hazardous yet again in Seeley Lake. The Missoula City-County Health Department’s latest update described the work week’s end as “a monstrously awful air quality day.”“The particulate pollution stayed relatively constant at every monitor, although we did finally see some improvement in the Lolo monitor right around noon,” said Sarah Coefield, an air quality specialist with the Health Department.
The Missoula City Cemetery’s proposal to offer expanded services to the public – including monument sales, placement and cleaning – ran aground Monday night amid questions about local government competing with private businesses that offer the same services. Rather than voting on the cemetery’s request, Missoula City Council members said they have too many unanswered questions and want the plan to make another pass through their Conservation Committee.
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".
