Labor Day has passed, which means it’s time to start baking fall things like apple pie or grunts. If you’re going to bake or frankly cook anything worth eating, it’s best to wear an apron. We found several aprons at Rooster Brother — a few are almost too attractive to wear. We were especially fond of a linen one printed with red poppies. There was a similar linen apron with a floral pattern featuring the aforementioned poppies as well as daisies and other flora. Those are $28.
ELLSWORTH — The Hancock County District Attorney’s Office cited an “unfortunate oversight” in dismissing an assault case Sept. 14. The issue: Prosecutors were unaware police had recorded their interview with the alleged victim. The case involves defendant Josiah Estabrook, 21, who was accused of assaulting his then girlfriend while she was holding their child at a Main Street residence in Ellsworth on Oct. 30, 2016. Estabrook had a jury trial Sept. 13.
BLUE HILL — While it is aiming to have laws in place for its Recreational Marijuana Initiative by 2018, Maine will not allow licensing for marijuana social clubs until 2019, according to Bar Harbor attorney Lynne Williams. Williams, whose practice includes cannabis business law, spoke at a community forum about retail marijuana Monday at the Blue Hill town office. The Penobscot Bay Press hosted the forum, which was moderated by Publisher Nat Barrows.
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".
