ROXBURY >> Megan Henry has always been comfortable pushing her limits. Growing up in Roxbury, she dreamed of skydiving, and always wanted to ride the most dramatic roller coaster she could find. Her mother, Barbara Henry, the town’s First Selectman, put a stop to that whole jumping-out-of-a-plane impulse for a while, barring her from skydiving until her late teenage years. Megan proved her passion was genuine — she did sky dive, taking to the air on her 18th birthday.
WINSTED >> The town of Winchester purchased the property at 32 Lake St. , commonly known as “Lambert Kay,” in 2002 for $1. More than a decade-and-a-half later, it could be said that the town earned a tidy return on the investment, but only if you were to gloss over a series of twists and turns and $500,000 in state resources. Residents this week approved selling the property to Parker Benjamin Real Estate for $1,000. “This is excellent news for the town,” said Mayor Althea Candy Perez.
LITCHFIELD >> A motion to revoke bond in the case of a man accused of sexual assault was denied Friday in Litchfield Superior Court. Edward Rush Jr., 44, then of 150 Hoerle Blvd., Torrington, but sometimes described as a Waterbury resident, allegedly struck a woman in the face, choked her and assaulted her in May, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
