While Gov. Matt Bevin touted his proposal to keep per-student K-12 funding the same — saying on Tuesday he wants to make sure not to "rob" students — his budget plan nevertheless makes some significant changes to Kentucky's education funding. Bevin's budget proposal, which is now in the hands of the state's general assembly, would leave per-pupil funding for public schools at $3,981 in fiscal years 2019 and 2020.
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin on Tuesday drew on longstanding concerns about bloated central office bureaucracy when he publicly called out the state's largest school district for having about 600 employees making $100,000 or more a year. Bevin, during his budget speech on Tuesday evening, criticized the 16,000-employee Jefferson County Public Schools, saying that those 600 are district employees "who don't touch your students, who don't teach in the classroom, administrative overhead. ...
Mike Howard, the man known throughout Harlan County and across Kentucky as "Mountain Santa," died Saturday morning. Howard had brought holiday cheer for decades by donning a red Santa suit and collecting toys to hand out to local children. This past year, struggling with advanced lung cancer, was the first he was unable to take up his beloved role. A representative with Anderson-Laws and Jones Funeral Home confirmed that Howard had died Saturday morning. Funeral arrangements are pending.
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".
