SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - A registered sex offender is accused of lying about where he lived and inappropriately touching a girl in a neighborhood he was not allowed to be living in. For years, police said Stacy Mercer claimed to be homeless and living out of his car at the intersection of Silver Star Road and Orange Blossom Trail in Orange County. But it was discovered he was secretly living in a Casselberry home. Mercer was arrested in Seminole County in 2012 on child pornography charges.
SANFORD, Fla. - The city of Sanford is looking at possibly consolidating its police and fire departments with Seminole County. Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett told Channel 9’s Jeff Levkulich that property taxes in the city have remained unchanged for years, while the cost to run the safety service departments continues to rise. Triplett said that this is all in the very preliminary stages, but consolidation is something they need to really consider.
SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - A mother called police claiming a stranger acted inappropriately toward her daughter and her daughter's friends inside a Winter Springs McDonald's, but the man says he did nothing wrong. The mother told police the man asked the girls if they worked at a local strip club, and then he appeared to touch the shirt of one girl. Channel 9 is not identifying the man because there are no charges against him.
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".
