An extended dispute by the City of Sitka to keep some email correspondence out of a murder trial involving two former municipal employees will be resolved in a judge’s chambers. Sitka Superior Court Judge David George ruled on Feb. 27 that the court will privately review over 1,800 emails seized from the computer of Reuben Yerkes, a former city paralegal accused of killing his girlfriend, Ali Clayton, in May of last year. Yerkes is a former Juneau resident.
A Sitka woman is in prison, pending extradition to the United Kingdom to face charges that she abducted her children to the United States. Since her arrest in downtown Sitka last April, Indea Ford has been treated as a criminal. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will ultimately decide if Ford has to return to face abduction charges in the U.K. — and to face a former partner who assaulted her and abused their children.
The Sitka School District is having an unprecedented budget discussion, as it looks to the city to help close a $2.3 million dollar spending gap next year. The School Board and the Assembly met in a special meeting Thursday night (3-8-18) to crunch numbers, and to consider extreme measures — like going to 4-day school weeks — to save money. The next Sitka School Board budget hearing will be 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 21 — a live call-in event on Raven Radio.
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".
