A weekly column called “Tales from the Trunk” was published in the Ukiah Daily Journal during 1976. It was a community composite edited and compiled by Annette Parks for the purpose of sharing and preserving our local heritage. The column was presented by the Greater Ukiah Chamber of Commerce as part of the community’s celebration of our nation’s Bicentennial and Ukiah’s Centennial year.
It has been two months since wildfires roared through Redwood and Potter valleys, taking the homes of an estimated 325 families with them. Even more tragically, the fires – now grouped together as the Mendocino-Lake Complex fire – took the lives of nine Mendocino County residents, including a brother and sister still in their teens. I did not personally know any of the individuals who were killed, but along with the rest of our community I mourn their loss.
J.B. Cassabonne deeded a strip of land, yesterday, 10 feet wide and 226 feet long, on the north side of Perkins street, from the Times building to the next street east, to the town, so that Perkins street might be widened to the depot. The generosity and enterprise of Mr. Cassabonne are appreciated by the citizens of the town. Mr. Cassabonne contemplates erecting a large hotel on the north side of Perkins street east of the Times building. The erection of the new building will be begun immediately.
Just learned that mystery writer Sue Grafton has died from cancer. What a loss...I treasure her books, and other @MendoLibrary patrons apparently agree: the Kinsey Millhone ebooks are almost always checked out. May she rest in peace. https://t.co/wkN4TtcLEp
What a loss this is...I treasure this series, and other @MendoLibrary patrons apparently agree: the Kinsey Millhone ebooks are almost always checked out. I'm sure Sue Grafton's work will continue to be read, far into the future. May she rest in peace. https://t.co/z0qq1DKCSi
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".
