Eric Arenas’ life was turned upside down on April 7. Things had seemed out of order in March, when the 13-year-old’s mile times began to lag in his physical education class at Kenilworth Junior High School and his legs were sore. The Petaluma native thought he could change his diet and regain his strength, but the intensity of the pain continued to fluctuate. After his arms began to hurt, his family took him to a clinic.
On a west Petaluma street corner stands a tree that bears witness to some of the most fervent desires of the city’s residents. Scribbled on slips of paper and tied carefully among the foliage of the so-called wish tree, those requests range from pleas for peace and acceptance to calls for adventure to “more smiles, laughs, cuddles and burritos.”Conceptualized by Sarah Healy, who owns a stately Victorian home nearby, the tree is now in its second iteration.
A Santa Rosa man was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of brandishing a knife at a security guard after he was asked to leave a downtown Petaluma bar for being unruly. The man, identified as 33-year-old Joshua Michael Sharp, was with a group of people who were intoxicated and causing a ruckus at Jamison’s Roaring Donkey shortly before 9:30 p.m., Petaluma police said in a news release. Police said Sharp is homeless out of Santa Rosa.
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".
