There comes a time in the grinding and gumming of issues when everything has been said, but not by everybody. I thought that’s about where we were in the matter of our Confederate statue before I read Mike Mozur’s viewpoint (“Let the Confederate Founding Fathers Speak”) in these pages a few days ago. Mr. Mozur has, I believe, cracked the code on a subject which has been demagogued by people who couldn’t pass a 10-question true or false test about the Civil War, its causes, costs and consequences.
Areas of Escambia County with lower crime rates will soon likely see fewer patrols from the Sheriff's Office. In a video posted online Friday, Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan said patrols would be cut to low-crime areas because of the manpower shortage his office faces and the dispute over the office's budget with the Escambia County Commission. "Because the manpower number continues to dwindle," Morgan said in the video. "I want to emphasize that. We lost 62 officers last year.
Escambia County Commissioners have approved a deal — with one commissioner literally holding his nose as he voted — to resolve the dispute over work on county-owned property to swap with the Navy's landing field in Beulah. "I'm holding my nose as I do it, I'm not happy," said Commissioner Jeff Bergosh. "But I'm not going to sit here and mope about it. We move forward. We will recoup this money with the value we get when we acquire the property."
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".
