Gig Harbor resident Bee Dietz likes to tell people she didn’t have much choice in who her husband was going to be. Growing up in the Texas Panhandle as a young girl during World War II, Dietz’s mother was an eighth grade teacher. Even then, her mother raved about one her students. His name was Bob. Bob and Bee got married in 1956, after Bob returned from serving as a parachutist for the U.S. Army in the Korean War. But before getting married, Bob and Bee were childhood friends and adventure buddies.
New Gig Harbor High School football coach George Fairhart has plenty of coaching experience, having been the head coach at Eatonville High School for 24 years. Maybe he felt like it wasn’t quite enough experience. So he added longtime Wilson High School coach Don Clegg to the Tides’ staff as the defensive backs coach. Clegg coached the Rams for 29 seasons. Suffice it to say, that’s quite a few years of coaching experience between the two. “Sometimes it feels like a coaching clinic,” Fairhart said.
The goal of the 11th annual Swim with Fish charity fundraiser this year was to raise $16,000 for the Gig Harbor Peninsula FISH Food Bank during the July 30 event. The event’s organizer, Steve Rees, and 19 other participants didn’t just meet the goal — they shattered it. By the latest count on Tuesday, the event raised $20,584 this year. Not bad for an event that started out as a modest wager between friends and turned into a charity event five years ago.
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".
