WILKES-BARRE— People at the Luzerne County Courthouse on Friday couldn’t take their eyes away from the newly renovated rotunda. County leaders said the sight of it was worth the wait. “Everybody is looking up. Everybody is saying what a phenomenal job this is. I’ve had lawyers who have worked here for 30 years saying, ‘I never knew that was up there,’’ Luzerne County Manager David Pedri said. The $2 million project began last August and it has been grueling work.
Publishers Clearinghouse showed up with a million-dollar surprise for her. Jo-Ann Snyder could barely believe it. She retired a while ago and this money is life-changing. With balloons and checks in hand, the prize patrol from Publishers Clearinghouse gave Jo Ann Synder of Wilkes-Barre Township the surprise of a lifetime. "You also won one million dollars upfront!"
SHAVERTOWN — It feels like we say it every year, but Penn DOT officials say it really is one of the worst seasons we’ve had for potholes considering how early we are into the year. Some of it has to do with the nice and not-so-nice weather we’re having. People using Hillside Road in Shavertown may have to get used to the sound of pothole bumps. This week’s warm and then wintry weather is perfect for making road craters. “I don’t know how it could get any much worse than it already is.
Andy Warhol passed away on this day in 1987. He’s my favorite artist. His work reminds us to find art in the ordinary. I hope that’s the lense through which you see your day. Make it a great one, everybody! 💛 #AndyWarholhttps://t.co/S2N4XKi77D
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".
