BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - It was a quiet day Thursday at the Payless Liquor store in southeast Bakersfield on Cottonwood Rd and Casino. But Wednesday night, grief echoed in the community as Bakersfield Police processed a crime scene. "Once officers arrived on scene, they located two subjects down in the parking lot, suffering from gunshot wounds," said Sgt. Marcella Haskins of Bakersfield Police Department. One man killed, another taken to the hospital with major injuries.
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The question appeared simple as City Manager Alan Tandy presented it to the Bakersfield City Council. "Your decision is whether it is in the public interest of your constituents to continue to allow PACE charges on property tax bills," explained Tandy. Over an hour and a half later the council decided PACE, or the Property Assessed Clean Energy program would not continue in the City of Bakersfield. A unanimous vote for those present. But the path there was anything but simple.
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Deputy District Attorney Jeff Noe confirmed to 17 News that the District Attorney's office has received multiple complaints from homeowners about the PACE program and his office, the Civil Unit, is looking into these concerns. One Bakersfield woman will be sharing her case with the DA's office this week. 57-year-old Valerie Slater lives in the Westchester neighborhood of Bakersfield. Her home is paid off, her son is fully grown, and she has a little white dog named Piper.
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".
