SEQUIM — This winter, locals can look to Sequim’s skies and waters for booming trumpeter swan populations. “They’ve definitely been rising in recent years,” said Bob Boekelheide of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society. Trumpeter swans were an uncommon sight in the Sequim area years ago. The first sighting of a swan was by society volunteers during the annual Christmas Bird Count in 1982, Boekelheide said.
A 24-year-old Ellensburg man faces first degree murder charges for the death of former Sequim resident Stephanie Curtis. Kittitas County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit announced Wednesday, Jan. 17, they arrested Christopher Almaral in the early morning after seizing a handgun allegedly linked to the murder of Curtis, 34. Curtis was found dead with gunshots around 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 7, alongside State Route 821 four miles south of Ellensburg, undersheriff Clay Myers reported.
The Wolves’ wrestling squad’s last home dual meet of the season ended on a somber note last Thursday. After weeks of wrestling well and winning against top talent, Sequim senior Hayden Gresli put himself in a good position to score some much needed points for his team against league leaders the Olympic Trojans on Jan. 11. A little over a minute into the 160-pound match-up with Olympic’s Zane Gorham-Roberts, however, Gresli took a fall on his right arm leading him to tap out.
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".
