Elmira police have arrested a second person in connection with an Aug. 23 shooting that sent one person to the hospital. The day after a teenager was shot in the 400 block of West Third Street, police charged 51-year-old Jose Rivas of Elmira with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony. Police have now charged the 17-year-old male who suffered gunshot wounds as well. The teen, whose name was not released, is charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony.
Someone should tell Hazel Thompson she can slow down a little. The Elmira woman did just turn 100 after all. It's doubtful Thompson will listen, as she continues to be an active volunteer after a long lifetime of service to the community. Family members from as far away as Texas joined friends and associates to toast Thompson on the occasion of her 100th birthday recently.
If you like to fish with live bait, that often means digging up your own or buying nightcrawlers or other bait from vending machines without knowing their condition. Melissa Rinker has an answer — especially for anglers who need to pick up bait at odd hours. She offers a variety of live bait in the shop, and said she's one of the few local businesses that still offer anything other than basic nightcrawlers.
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".
