During the debate about Dockside, the new — and now old — restaurant overlooking St. Paul’s Lake Como, there was a lot of sparring about revenue. How much would the city get, residents wondered, for the taxpayer-owned property, especially after a costly settlement to get the prior vendor out. With the restaurant, which opened in January 2015, announcing its closing this month, those questions have intensified on community forums.
The crowd included five attorneys, over a half-dozen St. Paul business owners, and at least as many city and state code workers. All congregating at Mancini’s Char House on West Seventh Street to talk about one thing: the Americans with Disabilities Act. Over the past year, dozens of St. Paul businesses have been served with a slew of lawsuits alleging violations of the decades-old act.
A teenager crossing the street in St. Paul’s Union Park neighborhood Sunday evening was struck by a pickup truck and critically injured. Police said the 14-year-old had just gotten off a southbound bus on Cretin Avenue at the corner of Carol Avenue, ran around the back of it and immediately crossed Cretin when he was struck by a southbound pickup. The teen was taken to Regions Hospital, where he remained in critical condition Monday, police said. Police received a call on the incident at 7:21 p.m.
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".
