With almost $1.75 million in funding donated from individuals and businesses as well as some grant funding, the Community Foundation of Mendocino County says it is being very careful not to give out all the money now when a multi-year recovery will continue to demand local resources for fire victims. Thus far, the foundation has spent $250,000. Of that, $200,000 went to North Coast Opportunities, which used the money to give a $1,000 check to each family or individual who lost a home to the fire.
There are still about 100 animals found or turned in as a result of the Mendocino Lake Complex fire at the Mendocino County Animal Shelter. According to shelter director Rich Molinari, “most are the in the ‘stray’ category,” meaning they don’t know who the owner is, if there is one. Molinari said he suspects a lot of the cats are “country cats,” felines that people gave food and water to but who they did not consider their own pet.
On Friday morning, Sheriff Tom Allman could be found in the Sheriff’s Emergency Operation Center on Low Gap Road, moving from one meeting to another meeting, then to a media interview, back over to the call center and into another meeting, and every couple of minutes being interrupted by someone with a question or a bit of information to pass on. Striding down the corridor of the ops center Allman passed a deputy with a plate of fried chicken and BBQ’d ribs. “Hey! Where’d you get that?” he asked.
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".
