WILKES-BARRE — Mayor Tony George on Thursday defended his firing of Officer Dan Duffy, saying he feared for the safety of his family after receiving a threatening email last month from the patrolman who also serves as union vice president. The email sent Sept. 16 by Duffy asked the administration to intervene in the deteriorating working relationship between members of the Police Benevolent Association and Commander of Patrol Ron Foy.
WILKES-BARRE — Against a resident’s objection, city council Thursday approved the mayor’s nomination to sit on the city Planning Commission. Council voted 4-0 to appoint Carl Naessig to the unpaid post effective Friday. His term expires Feb. 23, 2021. Naessig, of Diebel Avenue, replaced attorney Rodney Kaiser who left to fill Naessig’s spot on the Zoning Hearing Board after his term expired. But resident Sam Troy wanted the appointment put on hold until others could apply for it, including himself.
WILKES-BARRE — When Sheri Robzen saw the men with guns walking along the house, she had no idea they were looking for a bear in South Wilkes-Barre in the middle of the afternoon. It was around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and Robzen was helping 90-year-old Jeannette Garber straighten up her house on Mallery Place. “They were just walking along with their rifles,” Robzen said.
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".
