Foreign farmworkers are hired through the H-2A visa program, which allows farms to employ seasonal laborers when they can’t find enough U.S. workers to do the job. So far this year, only two farms in Whatcom County are using the program, according to the U.S. Department of Labor job registry. They’re both berry farms. One was Crystalview Raspberry Farm, which told DOL it needed to hire 72 workers.
A Whatcom County chiropractor and naturopathic doctor is being charged with unprofessional conduct for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a patient. Matthew R. Tellez treated the patient 62 times from June 2006 to May 2015, according to the statement of charges from the Washington state Department of Health. He allegedly began the sexual relationship around May 2015. The matter appeared before the Chiropractic Quality Assurance Commission and the Board of Naturopathy.
The Chinese were pushed out in 1885, a mob came for East Indian mill workers in 1907, and Japanese-Americans were forced into internment camps in 1942. In 2018, a granite arch will acknowledge those shameful episodes in Bellingham and Whatcom County history, as well as honor the early immigrants from China, India and Japan – and all immigrants who have come to the U.S. for a chance at better lives. The Arch of Healing and Reconciliation will be made of 10 tons of red granite from India.
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".
