Port Arthur businesses and residents will have reduced pressure tonight due to water main breaks in the city's system. The city announced just after 5 p.m. Thursday that "due to an above average number of large water main breaks" in the system, pressure has been temporarily reduced. The issue is expected to be resolved early Friday morning, the city said. Until then, residents are asked to conserve water.
An appeals court ruled Wednesday that a Port Arthur man's conviction for stabbing and killing a man at a 2014 house party should stand, turning down his claims of insufficient evidence and ineffective counsel. Dennis Jermaine Booker, 25, was found guilty in 2016 and sentenced to 60 years in prison for killing his girlfriend's cousin, Xavier Cane.
Update: HazMat crews have been called to clean up a diesel spill on the roadway from the crash, DPS Sgt. Stephanie Davis said. Paul Pope, 85, was driving a 2009 Chevrolet pickup truck towing a trailer, loaded with a diesel tank and portable air compressor, Davis said. The trailer was detached from the truck and rolled over after a tire blowout, damaging the diesel tank and spilling fuel on the road. Pope was not injured, Davis said. All southbound lanes remain closed.
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".
