SOUTHWEST FORSYTH -- Rebecca McWalters can have 20 students in her nurse’s clinic at a time on any given lunch, but none of them are sick. They all want to say hi to Frosty. Pet him, sit with him. DeSana Middle School may be the Dragons, but Frosty the 8-and-a-half-year-old yellow Labrador has become an icon at the school off Union Hill Road in southwest Forsyth. A public school having a therapy dog on campus every day is not just a first for the first-year school or for the district.
A Forsyth County grand jury has indicted a man for murdering his former roommate in north Forsyth last October. Christopher John Puckett, who was 31 at the time of his initial arrest, faces one count of malice murder, two counts of felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault, according to a Forsyth County Superior Court bill of indictment.
Seniors from two Forsyth County high schools were named National Merit Scholars, a prestigious distinction associated with college scholarships based on top-notch academic performance. Two South Forsyth High School students and two Lambert High School students were awarded the signature $2,500 in college funding from the 62nd annual National Merit Scholarship Corporation, chosen from a talent pool of more than 15,000 finalists.
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".
