White, black, rich, or poor, the parents of Veronica Jecker say it can kill any of our children. The opioid epidemic did kill their daughter, Veronica, who was just 22 years old. Her parents Carrie and Jay Parsley made the painful decision to tell their story, and Veronica's. It's not an easy story to tell, but they say no parent should have to go through this. It's happening to so many families in Kentuckiana, where opioid addictions are turning fatal.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Dr. Marty Pollio is focused on the job at hand. He added a whiteboard to the superintendent’s office so he can see the vision daily. The words “laser like focus” is even written on the board. And goal number one – to improve the culture and climate in Jefferson County Public Schools. Dr. Pollio inherited a decline in morale and says it’s his job to improve it and make JCPS passionate again.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – When Pat and John Byron think of their daughter Mary, they remember her as a happy person. John Byron says he remembers her as she was, not who she would be today. Mary Byron was murdered outside JC Penney at the Mall St. Matthews on her 21st birthday. She was shot to death in her car. The man who killed her, Donovan Harris, is up for parole next week, and Mary's parents will do everything they can to keep him in prison.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
