JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The opioid overwhelm just continues to grow on the First Coast. “There’s an epidemic going on,” Donna Hightower, an operating room technician at Orange Park Medical Center, described the problem bluntly Thursday. The latest Jacksonville Fire and Rescue (JFRD) numbers bear out that assessment, showing monthly statistics as recent as August, that include 350 overdose calls to 911 that month.
CAMDEN COUNTY, GA -- "It was hard to sleep last night," Alice Mack told First Coast News on Friday, "because I keep seeing that fire and hearing her voice when she was hollering for help." Alice was referring to neighbor Marcia Butler. Only a wood fence separates her and husband Terry's backyard in Woodbine from a property where a house fire killed Marcia Butler's six-year-old grandson Anthony Green and her sister Myra Butler, 52. The pre-dawn fire Thursday destroyed two houses in close proximity.
JACKSONVILLE, FLA. (First Coast News) - Who can resist taking pictures of babies? There is a viral story that has been floating around the internet stating a baby went blind because of a cell phone flash. As is so often the case, a well-meaning friend or relative gets in close and takes a flash photograph of a baby with their cell phone.

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".
