HONESDALE -- The verdict in a child sex case in Wayne County will have to wait a month after a witness -- the mother of the two alleged victims -- collapsed before taking the stand. The trial for Michael and Jamie Schwartz started Wednesday morning but stopped in the afternoon when that woman was taken to the hospital. An ambulance pulled up outside the Wayne County Courthouse in Honesdale and took away the mother of the two alleged victims in a child sex case against a husband and wife.
HONESDALE -- A homeowner in part of Wayne County broke out his paint brush to make a point in a dispute with his neighbor. That neighbor is a hospital in Honesdale. Scott Bennett and his wife live in a brick home along Park Street, and their garage now has a colorful message aimed at Wayne Memorial Hospital next door. It's all because the retired attorney said the hospital isn't playing by the rules.
SCRANTON -- The same jury that convicted a federal inmate of the brutal murder of a correctional officer in Wayne County now has to decide if he should be sentenced to death. Federal prosecutors told the jury there are many reasons Jessie Con-ui should be punished by death. In addition to what they call the cold-blooded murder of Correctional Officer Eric Williams, prosecutors were able to show evidence of the convicted killer's history of violence.
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".
