When the last federal government shutdown began on Oct. 1, 2013, the first casualties on the Jersey Shore were the goats. A herd had been brought to Sandy Hook that year to help eradicate a profusion of poison ivy that was undermining the historic battery. With all national parks closed back then, the goats had to vacate the premises.
TOMS RIVER - Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf has been appointed to a full-time management position in the Ocean County Health Department at an annual salary of $139,000, Freeholder Director Gerry P. Little confirmed. Rumpf, 53, a Republican from Little Egg Harbor, who has represented the state’s 9th Legislative District in Ocean, Burlington and Atlantic counties since 2003, was given the provisional title of director of personnel and program development on Jan. 3, county officials said Thursday.
This past week, President Donald Trump called for tougher federal libel laws after the publication of an unflattering book about the White House that even questioned the mental fitness of the nation’s 45th chief executive. Before the holidays, it was Ocean County Freeholder Joseph H. Vicari who voiced a similar position.

The subsequent events of this moment in time would lead to the Monica Lewinsky scandal and the impeachment of President Clinton three years later. https://t.co/vuIyXRHz0S
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".
