Carrie Cross told the judge the next time she would see 3-year-old Elijah Campbell, he would be dead. She was right. "I loved that boy. We had a lot of love for him," Cross said. Elijah died in 2014 — three years after St. Clair County Judge Laninya Cason terminated Cross' guardianship and returned the boy to his biological mother, Mio Campbell.
The friends and family of a Highland woman killed in a car crash on Friday are mourning her loss. Charlene Johnson, 45, died Friday as she was on her way to work, friends said. Johnson was headed west at about 4 a.m. Friday on U.S. 40 near Kennedy Lane in Highland when a truck driven by Wayne Stanton, 36, of Collinsville, crossed the center line and collided head on with Johnson’s truck. Stanton, who told police he was speeding, sustained a broken leg.
For more than a year, East St. Louis Township paid Kelvin Ellis as a consultant, even though a federal judge had prohibited him from working for any government agency supported by public funds. In detailed, written monthly reports to his parole officer, Ellis admitted he was working at the township, according to court records. There, he would occasionally come into contact with other felons — a potential parole violation.
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".
