CHEEKTOWAGA, NY – Two men being hailed by police as heroes for their quick action to stop a shooting spree outside a Union Road Dollar General don’t view themselves that way. “We’re not heroes, said Mark Pinnavaia, who used his car to run down and strike Travis Green, 29, after Green allegedly opened fire in front of the store late Tuesday afternoon. “We found an opportunity to stop him and that’s what we did,” Pinnavaia told WGRZ TV.
BUFFALO, NY- New York State may be facing a budget deficit, which is twice as large as the up to $4 billion estimate by Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Division of the Budget (DOB). That is according to the New York State Comptroller’s Office. The Comptroller reports the shortfall, which would be the largest facing the state since Cuomo took office, is concentrated in the category of personal income tax receipts which it forecasts will be dramatically lower than projected.
BUFFALO, NY- The attorney representing Dr. Eugene Gosy says he expects Federal prosecutors to announce additional charges against his client, including allegations attempting to link Gosy to the deaths of at least three patients who were under his care.

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".
