By John Darling For the Tidings Virtually all schools closed, some fenders got bent and a whopping 3.5 inches of snow — the 10th biggest daily snowfall in February in all 107 years of weather history here — Thursday dusted the valley with a delightful white blanket, but one that created “only a little bump” in the region’s all-important snowpack.It’s stuck at 39 percent of normal.The good news is that the storm upped the week's snow total at drought-stricken Mt. Ashland Ski Area to 13 inches...
By John Darling For the Tidings Waving signs on Ashland’s Plaza and drawing plenty of approving honks from passing cars, some 250 people Monday demanded common sense regulation of assault weapons and loudly chanted “No more silence, end gun violence.” Most of the protesters, demonstrating in the wake of the latest massacre of school children which killed 17 in Florida, said they have hopes this time will be different and there may be Congressional and presidential action because teen...

There is something about the wildly popular ukulele that’s fun, draws people together and makes it a lot easier to play a musical instrument — as will be seen at a community sing-along and jam session at The Black Sheep Pub & Restaurant in Ashland Saturday, Feb. 24, led by Tish McFadden and her band of Southern Oregon Ukulele Players (SOUP).That’s right, you get to sing in public.
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".
