Ken Blackman, the reserved but formidable administrator who ran Santa Rosa as city manager for a nearly unheard of 30 years that coincided with dramatic growth, and who left it to others to debate whether the power he exerted crossed any lines, died early Saturday at his home in the city. He was 82.
Santa Rosa is opening a cooling center at the Finley Community Center Sunday on what is predicted to be the hottest day of a heat wave scorching Northern California. Sunday’s forecast calls for the mercury to climb above triple digits. The National Weather Service has put a heat advisory into effect from 11 a.m. today to 11 p.m. Monday. Officials warn that the combination of high temperatures and humidity increase the risk of heat-related illness.
A Santa Rosa man was arrested Friday night on suspicion of indecent exposure after several people reported seeing him masturbating in clear view of the public, police said. Several witnesses reported seeing the man in the area of Mendocino Ave and Steele Lane at about 7:23 p.m. with his pants down. The man also reportedly chased at least one person, Sgt. Mike Clark said. Officers found a homeless man who fit the description in the creek area.
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".
