A child between 5 and 6 years old and an adult were shot Thursday afternoon on Great Hill Road, the police chief said. Officers were sent to the area after 3:30 p.m. The incident is near the intersection of Great Hill and Cannon roads. The injuries appear to be non-life threatening, Chief Scott Sansom said. Both were taken to the hospital. Bob Aylward, a neighbor, said he heard four or five shots about 3:30 p.m. He said he thought they were fireworks.
Don Ray has been customizing a 1946 Chevrolet panel truck for ten years and says he's just days away from driving his creation out of the garage and into the sun. Ray found the truck in three pieces behind an auto glass business in Tolland. Under the rust and veil of weeds, he said he saw the curves of a reborn American beauty. "I can look at something and see it finished – houses, cars..." the former home builder and carpenter said. "I said, 'I bet you I can make something that will turn heads.'
Michael Rock says he feels safer in his 1952 Crosley than he would in any modern mini-car. "I've got better protection in this," Rock said. "It's made of steel; it's the real deal." The Bristol man recently bought a Crosley Super Convertible for $1,800, bargained down from the $2,700 asking price. Rock, 56, said he saw the car at a local commercial garage and drove by it several times.
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".
