NEW ROCHELLE - Police Commissioner Patrick Carroll has announced his retirement after 24 years with the department. Carroll, 75, helped vastly cut down major crimes in the city during his tenure. This year, the department reported the lowest crime rate in 56 years. "People don’t realize what went on in New Rochelle in the old days and how it has changed, and it’s great that it has," Carroll said. After 28 years with the New York Police Department, Carroll took over the New Rochelle force in 1993.
NEW ROCHELLE - Jim Killoran's nearly 30 years at the helm of Habitat for Humanity of Westchester have taken him around the world, building and repairing homes in dejected neighborhoods. But Habitat's focus has shifted more locally in recent years, to Westchester County, where vacant "zombie" homes and crumbling parks have become widespread from cities such as Yonkers and New Rochelle to towns including Rye and Ossining.
WHITE PLAINS - A judge ruled Wednesday that enough of the petition signatures put forth by a slate of political challengers are valid, allowing the candidates to appear on the September primary ballot. City Democratic Party leaders, including incumbent Mayor Tom Roach, challenged hundreds of signatures submitted by mayoral candidate Milagros Lecuona, a Common Council member, and council candidates Saad Siddiqui, Alan Goldman and Michael Kraver.
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".
