HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Through the People's Choice Volunteer Award, the Community Foundation of Washington County puts the spotlight on one person who gives unselfishly of their time and talents to the area. The winner this year is a 91-year-old woman, who is still volunteering, in some way, almost every day of the week at the Mount Hope Prison Ministry in downtown Hagerstown. "She's probably like a grandmother to me," said Wanda Singleton, executive director at Mount Hope.
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - As Berkeley County continues to be mired in a drug epidemic, more offenders are choosing to get treatment through the Day Report Center, rather than stay behind bars. But capacity and staffing issues are making it hard for the agency to treat potential participants. A few weeks ago, the Day Report Center went overcapacity - meaning it can no longer take in new clients. Right now, there are 140 participants in the program, which is 20 more than it's designed to handle.
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Veterans of the armed forces can have a variety of needs after completing their service, but organizers at the 2017 Veteran Expo in Franklin County aim to make their event a "one-stop shop" to fill those needs. County commissioners got the expo off the ground in 2014. Ever since, it's been a gathering place for veterans and their families to learn more about available resources.

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".
