The director of a group that represents police statewide called City Councilman Cecil Bothwell's comments about a local lieutenant "repugnant." The North Carolina Police Benevolent Association is considering taking legal action against Bothwell, said John Midgette, executive director. The association received two emails from Bothwell asking it to "back off" on concerns about Police Chief William Anderson until after the election next week.
Emergency departments take them as they come. Gunshot wounds. Car wrecks. The homeless who want to get out of the cold. The mentally ill who have nowhere else to go. People who can pay. People who can't. Once, doctors at Mission Health spent $5.2 million in two months treating two separate men, both hemophiliacs who wrecked their motorcycles on the Blue Ridge Parkway. They lived. Mission lost millions. On a busy Monday afternoon in February, Jason Webb waits to see a doctor.
Police Chief William Anderson promised he would not sue the city under labor laws and accepted a payment of $35,000 in exchange for his retirement, according to a settlement agreement. He also agreed to help the city defend itself against any lawsuits arising out of his time as chief of police. He will get his payment 10 days after he retires on Dec. 31. The city hired him in 2012. He makes $145,000 a year.
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".
