It will be an active day weather-wise on Wednesday. It started out frigid with temperatures in the low teens and the wind chill near zero early this morning. By this afternoon, we’ll be talking about snow. A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect for Butler County at 4 p.m. Wednesday and continues through 7 a.m. Thursday. The National Weather Service is expecting 2-4 inches to fall in Butler. “Plan on slippery road conditions,” according to the advisory.
Even though winter doesn’t officially start until Dec. 21, it sure feels like winter out there. Unfortunately, many people struggle this time of year to heat their homes. One way to ensure that everyone does have a warm home is through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, also known as LIHEAP. Applications for this program are currently being accepted and will continue to be accepted through April 6, 2018.
The state House on Tuesday voted to advance a bill limiting abortions to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. The legislation would alter the existing 24-week limit but keep current exceptions in place including when a mother’s life is at risk. It does not allow exceptions for rape, incest or fetal abnormalities. Gov. Tom Wolf has vowed to veto it.

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".
