A GoFundMe has been set up for the family of the rescued a 14-year-old girl who was trapped for several hours inside her destroyed home after the mudslides and flooding that devastated Montecito earlier this week. The girl, later identified as Lauren Cantin, was covered from head to toe in mud when firefighters pulled her to safety. News and video of the rescue spread quickly. Her brother is still missing; her father’s name now appears on the county’s official list of victims.
Steve and Angela Nino, owners of Nino’s Grill in Templeton, plan to open a new restaurant on Pine Street in Paso Robles next month. General manager Melissa Mattson said On Bar will likely open its doors in mid-February — pending the approval of its liquor license — and will be located at 1144 Pine St., where the Villa Creek restaurant operated for nearly two decades.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown confirmed Friday afternoon that 18 people have been killed by the flooding and mudslides in Montecito. Search and rescue officials located 87-year-old Joseph Francis Bleckel dead inside his residence on Friday. Bleckel was previously listed on the official missing persons list, Brown said. There are currently five active missing persons cases, Brown said, though that number has continued to fluctuate throughout the week.
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".
