A water main break shut down some businesses at Short Pump Town Center, forcing restaurants to lock their doors as crews continue working on repairs. With repairs expected to take up to five hours, some restaurants were completely closed. Other businesses were putting employees on standby, waiting out the water issues to resume business as many of them share the same system where the water main break is being repaired.

When you call 911, ambulances and fire trucks usually show up. But to cut down on the number of calls and free up resources and hospital beds, Chesterfield Fire & EMS actually deploys a special unit to respond to minor emergencies. It is called the mobile integrated healthcare program, and it saves you a trip to the ER and saves you money. "A typical ambulance call costs several thousand. We can only bill, in some cases, $500," said Chief Loy Senter, Chesterfield Fire & EMS.
The Monument Avenue Commission heard from residents on Wednesday on what should be done with the city's Confederate monuments. Mayor Levar Stoney created the commission in hopes of adding more context to the monuments and maybe even some new statues. He says the goal is not to tear the current monuments down. "It's our time. It's our responsibility to set the historical record straight on Monument Avenue's Confederate statuary," Stoney said in June.
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".
