Maryann Grippo, a dogged and compassionate prosecutor who saw the value of strong police training before taking the helm of the Lackawanna College Police Academy, died this weekend. She was 51. Wendy Hinton, a spokeswoman for the college, confirmed Grippo’s death this morning. “We can confirm that she did pass away,” Hinton said.
An elderly couple in Fell Twp. was discovered dead this morning at their home on 44th Street after a caregiver reported for duty and discovered them, Carbondale Police Chief Brian Bognatz said. Police responded at about 7:30 a.m. The couple, whose names were not released, had bullet wounds. Police believe this was a murder-suicide. There is no apparent danger to the public. The couple, an 87-year-old man and 82-year-old woman, suffered from debilitating medical issues, the chief said.
One is a career prosecutor with about three decades of time logged in the Lackawanna County district attorney’s office and numerous high-profile cases resolved during his tenure. The other is a 27-year defense attorney and civil litigator with credentials few lawyers can claim. On Nov. 7, voters will decide which one should serve as the county’s chief law enforcement officer. District attorneys serve four-year terms. The district attorney’s salary this year is $175,573.
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".
