Ever since Mackenzee Collins started pitching when she was 8, she’s wanted to reach the highest level in softball. Her late father Tim believed she could do it, and so did her mother, Heather, as well as number of other supportive people in her life. Just as important, Collins had faith in herself. Nearly a decade later, the South Whidbey High School senior finally achieved that goal when she signed her letter of intent with Colorado State University this past week.
Following long tradition, The Record visited South Whidbey Elementary School to chat with students about Thanksgiving. Read below to find what these little gobblers had to say. Evan Del Faro The Record: What are you thankful for on Thanksgiving? Evan: Turkey. The Record: What’s your favorite part about Thanksgiving? Evan: The family. The Record: Are you going to help cook? Evan: No. The Record: What’s your favorite food for Thanksgiving? Evan: Corn.
Langley is officially a sanctuary city by ordinance. In a surprising turn of events, a Langley City councilman, who for months heavily opposed the immigration-related ordinance, became its champion at Monday night’s regular monthly meeting. Bruce Allen was the instrumental voice in bringing the ordinance back after it was shelved by the council in June. It effectively limits the city’s cooperation with the national government in enforcing federal immigration laws.
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".
