The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) activated its Crisis Action Team Tuesday to help respond to any emergencies that might come due to predicted icy weather conditions. Officials say they are keeping a close eye on road conditions and have resources on standby. State work crews bundled up and moved into action well before noon. They loaded bags of salt onto trucks headed to staging areas across the state.
An area of Scotlandville that could use a little T.L.C. is getting perhaps the best dose of it. A fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into something that once seemed old and forgotten. Hundreds of volunteers canvassed a one mile stretch of Scenic Highway to brighten up buildings that may have gone dark or faded into a dim background. Cuttin’ Corners Barbershop is getting a fresh new look.
District Attorney for the 23rd Judicial District Court Ricky Babin and his 20 assistant DA's will have the court dockets full this year. Babin hopes to set trial dates for some 25 murder cases in Ascension Parish, six in St. James Parish, and two in Assumption Parish. Babin says one of the high-profile cases involves the 2014 murder of Talaija Dorsey, 12, who was beaten and left for dead in a sugar cane field.

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".
