Stones River National Battlefield in Murfreesboro has closed its park tour road and visitor center "due to a lapse in federal appropriations," according to a post on the historic site's Facebook page Saturday morning. The federal government shut down Friday night after the Senate blocked a short-term spending bill. Early Saturday morning, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the Senate in session.
District spokesman James Evans said roads in several neighborhood and shaded areas are still impacted by snow and ice. "Schools will reopen Monday and we are looking forward to students returning," he said. County schools can hold extracurricular activities on Friday and over the weekend upon principal discretion, Evans noted. Friday, Jan. 12 was the last day students attended school. With Friday's closure, the district has three days remaining in its stockpile.
By the time Friday comes around, it will have been a week since Rutherford County and Murfreesboro City schools students have attended class. Both districts have been closed since Jan. 12 due to weather and Monday's Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday. Each district began the year with 11 inclement weather days, but haven't used them the same way. Snow days are stockpiled by the districts, adding 30 minutes to the state-required 6.5-hour school day.
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".
