Tony White of Rhome is the fourth – and final – candidate to file in the Precinct 3 constable race. White filed just before the deadline Monday to run as a Republican in the March 6 primary election. He’ll face Cary Mellema, Charles Applewhite and Terry Terry. There is no Democratic opponent, so whoever wins the primary will fill what remains of an unexpired term. The office was left vacant in August when former constable Doug Parr resigned as a condition of a criminal plea deal.
Our Elf on a Shelf has been laid off. It was a tough conversation, but I had to let Chisbee go. He simply wasn’t working very hard anymore; he’d lost his zest for the holiday hoopla. When he first came to our family several years ago, he was full of creative ideas and made an effort to surprise the kids. He hand-delivered their letters to Santa and occasionally left them personal notes. But the last few years he just phoned it in. There were days he did nothing. Didn’t even move.
A Bridgeport man who was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash Dec. 3 died Friday, according to Cpl. Lantz Elliott with the Department of Public Safety. He and his grandson, 14-year-old Dusty Littrell, were on their way to the Wise County Toy Run when the accident occurred. They were westbound on Farm Road 1655 about a mile west of Alvord when the motorcycle ran off the side of the road for an unknown reason around 10:45 a.m. Helicopter ambulances were called for both Littrells.
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".
