The former principal of Bay Haven Charter Academy has reached a settlement deal with her former employer. Court documents show Michelle Gainer, who filed a lawsuit with the school in January 2017 alleging gender discrimination and unlawful retaliation, has settled her case with Bay Haven. Gainer was fired in July 2016, months after she and former Assistant Principal Erin Harper filed complaints against former Bay Haven CEO Dr. Tim Kitts, accusing him of discrimination.
One Crestview resident is now a medalist in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, as Team USA won the first women's long track speedskating medal in 16 years. But the team couldn't have done it without Mia Manganello. The 28-year-old from Okaloosa County was a part of the trio that beat out Canada for the bronze. We spoke with her mother Karen over the phone Wednesday, who got emotional talking about her daughter's victory.
It’s a troubling claim— a recently released report from ProPublica.org is pointing the finger at Tyndall Air Force Base for decades of procrastination involving pollution at more than 100 sites. Years before it was an Air Force base, part of Tyndall’s property was used as an Army Gunnery School for World War II training, using lead-based ammunition. Years later, lead shot littered what is now the school grounds. Amy Mason taught at the school for 33 years.
TONIGHT @ 5:30: Long before Tyndall AFB was home to fighter jets, it was a gunnery field for WWII trainees, using lead-based ammo. Decades later, the dispute over potential environmental pollution is an issue. Hear from EPA and Tyndall officials tonight in a special report. https://t.co/o6tolQLJed
This is lead shot that was found on Tyndall AFB's property. The CDC says lead exposure to children can damage the brain and nervous system,
slow growth, and cause learning and behavior problems. Is there a risk to our area? Find out tonight in a special report. https://t.co/6fJoMiM3Pa

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".
