'Shelter in place status' has been lifted for schools in Orange following a threat reported Friday morning. Superintendent of Schools for Orange, Tari N. Thomas, shared in a tweet that schools in Orange will now be returning to normal operations. This follows the potential threat at Ralph C. Mahar Regional High School which Thomas said was reported around 7:41 a.m. Friday. All students and staff were secured in place and continued with their classes as police investigated the 'non-specific' threat.
An active investigation is underway after the discovery of a bullet inside an elementary school classroom, apparently shot through a window earlier this week. It was a pretty frightening find at Morgan Elementary School in Holyoke. According to Holyoke Public Schools, there is an increased police presence because of the incident. Western Mass News was on-scene as a window was replaced this morning. It's presumed that that was the window that had a bullet hole in it.
A special ceremony was held Friday to remember the life of Trooper Thomas Clardy, who was killed in the line of duty during a traffic stop. A memorial and the dedication of a bridge in Clardy's honor was unveiled during an event this afternoon at the State Police barracks in Charlton. Clardy was killed two years ago today during a traffic stop on the Mass. Pike when a driver crossed all the lanes and crashed into the back of his cruiser.
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".
