A boat was blown onto a beach Sunday afternoon, spilling about 25 gallons of diesel fuel into the Swinomish Channel. Contact with the beach caused the boat to lean, spilling fuel out of its fuel vent, said David Walde, interim emergency management division manager with the Skagit County Department of Emergency Management.
A wildfire on Chuckanut Mountain grew overnight to between 50 and 60 acres, and residents of nearby homes have been evacuated.Firefighters responded to calls about 4 p.m. Tuesday when the blaze was estimated at 2 to 3 acres. The fire is south of the Lost Lake Trail parking area. "It was confusing from here, because of all the haze from B.C., whether this was a real fire or not," said Chief David Ralston of the South Whatcom Fire Authority.
MOUNT VERNON — A Skagit County District Court judge denied a motion Friday morning from prosecutors to put off a preliminary hearing for a suspect in an arson-murder case. Jaramy Le Chism, who prosecutors believe played a role in a house fire in which two children died, has been held since July 19 on charges filed under a magistrate's warrant in District Court.The warrant gives law enforcement until Aug. 18 to investigate before prosecutors must charge Chism in Superior Court.
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".
