Today, an update on Bella’s Bumbas, an organization I first wrote about last March. It’s a heart-warming story of a cause that began in Webster, but is now helping children all over the world. Bella’s Bumbas began by chance a year ago by Webster residents Rebecca Orr and her husband Marty Parzynski. In 2015, their niece Bella was born with spina bifida, which caused paralysis of her lower limbs.
A young East Rochester musician has taken her skills, and her hopes of making it big, to Nashville, and people are beginning to take notice. Alyssa Trahan, an East Rochester native, is well known on the local country music scene. She and her band started performing even while she was still attending East Rochester High School, averaging more than 100 gigs a year at bars and restaurants, fairs and festivals in Rochester and beyond.
WEBSTER -- Dozens of Brighton and Webster firefighters descended on Klem South Elementary School in Webster last week — yet there was no fire. They were fired up, all right, but this was a different drill. The occasion (drumroll) ... a kickball game. Yep, it was an evening of fun, friendly competition with a catch: Everyone had to play in full turnout gear. We’re talking upward of 80 pounds of gear, including bunker pants, boots, turnout coat, bailout gear, gloves, helmet, hood, mask and air pack.

@websterlibrary@WebsterCSD Thanks! I was actually trying to tweet to St. Joseph School directly, which is not part of the district calendar. I have some additional contact information now, so I'm good. Thanks for wanting to help!!!
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".
