The best people in our lives make the ones we cherish most. For Cle Elum’s Lorna Jones, Eileen “Mouse” Costello didn’t disappoint. The two women met in the 1990s when Jones helped recruit Costello to play on a local women’s softball team which ultimately became known as Sandona’s Bud Girls. There was good reason the team approached Costello. Then, working as a speech therapist for the Cle Elum-Roslyn School District, Costello was hardly your run-of-the mill rec league athlete.
CLE ELUM-ROSLYN — On a sunny day marked by steady winds that challenged shade tents, South Cle Elum’s Barb Therkelsen stood before a crowd gathered on the Cle Elum-Roslyn High School track for the opening of the annual Relay for Life of Kittitas County and talked about two days that changed her life. One was the day her mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The second came Aug. 12, 2009, two years to the day that marked her mother’s death when she herself was diagnosed with breast cancer.
CLE ELUM-ROSLYN — At 16, Andrew Hastings, a student in teacher Al Montgomery’s basic wood shop class at Cle Elum-Roslyn High School, is dreaming big about building small. On a spring before school got out, he and other classmates were busy salvaging materials from a building on campus that was torn down. The building, formerly used for storage, will be replaced by a new building that will house the school’s music program.
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".
