Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said Wednesday that the $143,500 in proceeds from last year’s Suffolk County Marathon have gone out to the 15 groups providing services to local veterans and touted the third annual Suffolk Marathon on Oct. 29. Joining Bellone at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip was Alan Guerci, president and chief executive officer of Catholic Health Services, the major sponsor of the multi-race event.

Suffolk County officials have imposed a 16-ton weight limit on vehicles using the aging bridge that leads to oceanfront Smith Point County Park, requiring the heaviest trucks to stop at a checkpoint to limit the number that use the span at once. “There’s no danger. We just want to make sure the bridge maintains its functionality,” said Gil Anderson, Suffolk public works commissioner. Anderson said the new limits will not affect passenger cars, which average about 1.5 tons.
Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who has already endorsed Suffolk Police Commissioner Timothy Sini for district attorney, is now planning to headline a fundraising event next month for Sini at the law office of his campaign chairman, David Kelley. The event is scheduled for Sept. 18 at the Dechert law office in Manhattan, with tickets starting at $250 and sponsor levels ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. Kelley said Sini will not attend the fundraiser.
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".
