It is a local landmark, a place where people go to fish, crab and simply spend time together. Now, an owner confirms there's a deal in the works to sell Lynnhaven Fishing Pier in Virginia Beach. The rumors have circulated for years, but Wednesday Bobbie Lou Cashman-Duff, one of the owners of Lynnhaven Fishing Pier, verified the deal in progress with Westminster-Canterbury. She emphasized nothing is official yet, but it should be finalized next month.
This week marks a somber anniversary -- It's been thirty years since the violent killings of Robin Edwards and David Knobling. Those names might sound familiar. Their deaths are part of four gruesome cases infamous in our area--the Colonial Parkway Murders. Thirty years hasn't softened the blow of losing 14-year-old Robin Edwards in such a brutal and mysterious way. Virginia State Police explained this is an ongoing investigation.
They say "time heals all wounds," but for the families of the eight people killed in what's known as the "Colonial Parkway Murders" three decades hasn't offered much solace. This week marks the thirtieth anniversary of one of those cases -- the violent killings of Robin Edwards and David Knobling. Thirty years later, the case has not been solved. Now, David's brother is speaking out on his search for answers. For Mike Knobling, his garage is a second home of sorts.
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".
