Can school districts ban guns on school grounds? It's allowed in many states already, but right now, the debate is raging in New Hampshire. Unlike Vermont, New Hampshire does not currently have a law that bans guns from school grounds. Because of that, districts throughout our region have been taking matters into their own hands, imposing the gun bans on campus. But the new bill aims to stop that by essentially making districts pay up.
Officials are monitoring the Connecticut River where the historic Windsor-Cornish covered bridge is facing rising water and ice chunks. Windsor Town Manager Tom Marsh is warning residents of possible evacuations. An ice jam near the bridge led to some flooding over the weekend. At one point the bridge was closed. It is now back open.

In May 1962, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. addressed an overflow crowd at Dartmouth College. Monday, audio of that speech once again rang out on campus. The speech was played for the public in the very same room where King first made the remarks 55 years ago. It was one of several events taking place on campus this Martin Luther King Jr. Day to celebrate the civil rights icon and his message of equality and inclusion.

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".
