SACRAMENTO -- State Assemblymember Jim Cooper and some local sponsors handed out turkeys and health screenings to hundreds of families Tuesday. Around 2,500 boxes were filled up, each containing a 10 to 12 pound turkey, and given to families that lined up at Luther Burbank High School. "We count. You know what we say, what we do, how we live and how our friends and neighbors live," neighbor Pam Mondragon said. "It's important to us." Families also got flu shots and goodie bags.
STOCKTON -- There were lots of smiles and "thank yous" Monday morning at the Emergency Food Bank of Stockton as they gave out more than 2,200 turkey boxes to residents in need. Raquel Aragon says she understands what it's like to struggle, especially during the holidays. "There's people out there that don't have nothing. I grew up with a really poor family so I know how it is. So for them to do something like this, it's thoughtful.
Davis -- The Davis Joint School District made the decision to cancel classes Friday at Holmes Junior High School due to a gun threat. Via an app, administration learned of an anonymous threat saying a gun would be brought and used on campus.

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".
