When Lt. Col. Michael Schwan was asked to speak at Saturday’s Clinton County Veterans Day Program in Breese, he said he was first “overwhelmed with pride and honor.” Yet, the Air Force veteran who serves as commander of the 458th Airlift Squadron at Scott Air Force Base and has led combat weather teams into Afghanistan and Iraq supporting the Army’s elite 82nd Airborne Division, admits those feelings were followed shortly by “immense fear.” “What was I going to say in front of the men...
Starting next month, the city of Breese will have a new business administrator. Mayor Charlie Hilmes announced the appointment of Shelly Schadegg at the regular meeting of the Breese City Council on Tuesday night, Nov. 7. Schadegg, who has a degree in business administration, has worked in accounting and finance for 25 years. Most recently, she handled construction management and business management for two hotel properties in Florida and Texas.
Justin Kruep admits that he hates public speaking, yet he stood in a courtroom at the Clinton County Courthouse last week and spoke some incredible words of wisdom. “Tell yourself that you’re not going to give up,” Kruep said. “Anything that’s easy in this life, isn’t worth it. And, if it’s worth it, it’s not going to be easy.” Kruep, 28, of Breese was recognized last Thursday morning as the most recent graduate of Clinton County Drug Court.
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".
