BRENTWOOD — Even though it was their first real gig, Stepback rocked the stage at Lathrop’s Dell’Osso Farms recently with classic rock anthems like “I Love Rock and Roll” and “One Way or Another.”This new band of Brentwood teens drew the biggest crowd among the lineup of five bands playing that day at the pumpkin patch and made their parents proud. “These kids rock,” said Marty Boisvert, the father of the bass guitarist and the band’s mentor.
OAKLEY — Lindsay and Justin Decker’s newborn daughter, Brooklyn, spent 65 days in the NICU after being born at 27 weeks gestation and weighing only 1 pound and 15 ounces. So Brooklyn’s homecoming to Oakley two weeks ago was even more significant to her parents, and there was something special there to make the experience more memorable. “When we drove up, it brought smiles to our faces,” said Lindsay Decker of a cut-out stork delivered to their front yard by Storks R Us, LLC.
BRENTWOOD — Brentwood’s former director of public works Balwinder “Bailey” Grewal was appointed Tuesday night to serve the remaining year of former Brentwood Vice Mayor Steve Barr’s term.

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".
