SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) — Any cemetery has seen its share of tears but at Bankester Cemetery in Spanish Fort, there was a different kind of sadness after vandals tore through the community cemetery. The vandals smashed and tore up anything in sight and even things they couldn’t see. “It breaks my heart,” says Agnes Wilson. “It absolutely breaks my heart.”Most of the damage had been cleaned up a few hours after the vandalism had been discovered.
BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — Pelicans are more common than boats on the bay around Pelican Point. The goofy looking bird is a favorite among many. “They out here just trying to eat, just like we are trying to catch some fish to eat,” says angler Donald Burrell, Jr. So, when a pelican was found dead in a place named after the bird, black electrical tape wrapped around its beak, more tape and rope wrapped around its feet and a wing, there was outrage and shock.
LOXLEY, Ala. (WKRG) — An inmate from the Loxley Work Release Center is back behind bars after a brief taste of freedom overnight. “It’s just a common thing around here for them to get out,” says Corey Williams. At least it seems that way. “It’s just very uncomfortable right now,” says Myrtle Ephriam. “It’s not good for something like this to happen.”Tuesday night it happened again. 40-year-old William Shawn Foster, serving a 20-year sentence on drug charges, was discovered missing after a head count.
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".
