DICKSON CITY — There are many signs that the holidays are near, but when you hear the bells ringing, you know a red kettle is close by. This is the first day Salvation Army volunteers are out ringing their bells around Lackawanna County. From now until December 23, you’ll see the bell ringers at several locations including at the Viewmont Mall in Dickson City, The Marketplace at Steamtown, and Price Chopper stores in Taylor and Dunmore. “Giving has no season.
PITTSTON — There was only one rule at Pittston’s Martin L. Mattei Middle School’s annual Veteran’s Day Breakfast: students had to sit with the vets, and vets had to sit with the students. “It’s something different, it threw us off guard a little bit. But having the kids asking us questions instead of us giving them something that might be boring to them,” said U.S. Army Veteran Bernie McDonald.
MONTAGE MOUNTAIN — The Shoppes at Montage opened in Moosic in 2007 and since then, plenty of new clothing stores and restaurants have opened up. Within the next year, you’ll not only notice more of that but more things to come across the whole mountain. There are quite a few construction sites to look at as your driving through Montage Mountain — some old and some new and some changes are coming here to Moosic.
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".
