ELKTON — After 2015 and 2016 saw more traffic fatalities across the state than 2014, the secretary of the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is asking each county to develop and implement a county-level strategic highway safety plan to complement MDOT’s statewide plan.The request was first made during the 2016 Consolidated Transportation Program meetings, during which MDOT officials confer with local officials on transportation priorities.In the spring, MDOT Secretary Pete Rahn...
ELKTON — Ku Klux Klan members from two groups, both from outside of Cecil County, attracted about 50 people to a meeting Friday night, Dec. 20 in Elkton, but not all who came were in support.Klan leaders told those who attended the meeting, which had state troopers, sheriff’s deputies and town police officers posted inside and outside, that they are no longer a “hate” group, but insisted they now have a political agenda.Not everyone was convinced.
ELKTON — I’m signing off today from writing “Mattix on Matters,” a weekly column I began at the urging of former Cecil Whig General Manager Jeff Mezzatesta in August 2003.After nearly 14 years and 700 columns, I have decided to jump into retirement full-time. Who knew it would be so liberating?I’ve enjoyed meeting a lot of very interesting people along the way and have become friends with many of them. It’s taken me on paths I never would have walked down.
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".
