ASHEVILLE — Even during a year in which its number of arrests is down, Buncombe County topped the state's list for the most "intoxicated and disruptive" charges. Buncombe in 2017 had more intoxicated and disruptive charges than any other municipality in North Carolina, according to an analysis by the Raleigh News and Observer.
ASHEVILLE — Known for its wide array of options and pegged as a foodie haven, Asheville has no shortage of restaurants for tourists and locals to enjoy. According to Buncombe County's credit card records, Wanda Greene enjoyed them, too. Nearly one-fifth of the $209,000 charged on the former county manager's county-issued credit card was spent on pricey restaurant visits, both in town and elsewhere.
ASHEVILLE — Al Whitesides recalled a drive he took nearly two decades ago, when he was heading south with his family. "The policeman pulled us over and that's when I was reminded of what I went through in the '60s — how it is when you're driving being a black man," the commissioner said. "What's unfortunate is, here we are almost 20 years later, and the same thing is going on. We've got to stop it, and we cannot afford to have this go on."
Shoutout to everyone who suffered through the flu this season. Our household just fought the ultimate fight this week — and it’s not fully over, I think — and it’s been BUH-ROOTAL. https://t.co/rTi48HXtzm
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".
