There probably won’t be some clown driving the bus, but some riders will be in for surprises when Island Transit celebrates its 30th birthday. The official ceremony will be at 10 a.m., Dec. 1 at Harbor Station. There’s no word on cake. Then in the afternoon, there will be a birthday party on the buses. Island Transit is providing entertainment on Route 1, which has buses that run the spine of the island, in the form of musicians, comics and maybe even a clown.
It was something one might expect to see in a middle-school bathroom but not writ large across the sky. People in Okanogan were apparently surprised when a Navy aircraft drew a penis hovering in the heavens above the town Thursday, the Spokesman Review reported. Officials at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island confirmed that the aircraft that drew the sky graffiti with its contrails is a Growler homebased on Whidbey.
The suspect in two armed robberies of a Clinton gas station is being held in jail on $200,000 bail. The police officer who arrested Jonathan “Lexzi” Zupan, 24, outside the gas station Monday night likely thwarted a third armed robbery, Island County Deputy Criminal Prosecutor Eric Ohme said in court Tuesday afternoon. He called Zupan “brazen,” especially since she knew she was already a suspect in the case.
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".
