clifton park, N.Y. >> Saratoga County has redesigned its FAVOR (Find and Assist Veterans of Record) card in hopes it will get veterans to join a program that can help them and their families in a crisis. The program was created by former county clerk, now state Sen. Kathy Marchione, R-Halfmoon, in 2011 as a way to return a favor to the veterans for their service.
BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. >> Saratoga County District Attorney Karen Heggen said late Thursday afternoon her office handed up a superseding indictment against two people accused of killing a Mechanicville man, and is awaiting a court date for a rearraignment of the suspects. Nikolai M. Mavashev, 19, of Halfmoon and Joseph A. Broscko, 16, of Clifton Park were arrested Aug. 9 for the murder of 19-year-old David J.

HALFMOON, N.Y. >> The Halfmoon Historical Society dedicated a historic marker recently at the site of a former riverside tavern that once entertained George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. The marker notes the spot at 603 Hudson River Road where Thomas and Elizabeth Peebles built their home in 1766. Upon Thomas’ death in 1774, Elizabeth opened the home up to the public as a tavern to support her family, one of the first taverns in the 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 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".
