FARMINGTON — A fire that heavily damaged the Falls General Store and the apartment above it last week has been ruled an arson, Sgt. Joel Davis of the Maine Office of State Fire Marshal said Tuesday. State fire investigators, Farmington firefighters and police set up a checkpoint on Tuesday night on Croswell Street handing drivers fliers and asking if they might have seen something the night of April 4.
JAY — The town's certified state valuation for 2017-18 has been reduced by $111.8 million, to $586.45 million under the state's Sudden and Severe Disruption of Valuation Program. It is the second year Jay has qualified for a reduced adjustment because of downsizing at the Androscoggin paper mill and the loss of valuation for the town.
RANGELEY — The annual town meeting June 13 is the first to be held by secret ballot at the polls. Townspeople voted 64-34 on June 16, 2016, to change from an open meeting to voting on the warrant at the polls. Town Manager Tim Pellerin said last year that changing to a referendum would be a great opportunity to get more people to vote and to have more voices heard. It would also allow voters more privacy to make decisions.
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".
