CHARLESTON — All year Fairmont Senior coach David Retton has stressed to his team the importance of living in the moment and never getting too high, too low, or looking beyond the task at hand.Doing so would be easy for this group of Polar Bears, who fell to Chapmanville in Saturday’s Class AA title game, as few would argue that over the past four years they’ve earned the right to pat themselves on the back from time to time.“We played in four state championship games,” Retton said.
CHARLESTON — The Wheeling Central Maroon Knights, in their fourth title game appearance in five years, defeated Ravenswood Saturday, 54-40, to win the Class A state championship.The Wheeling Central defense didn’t allow anything easy for Ravenswood throughout the game, holding the Red Devils to 26.8 percent shooting in the game with only 11 made field goals in 41 attempts.The Maroon Knights, conversely, shot 47.6 percent from the floor, with 11 assists on 20 made field goals.
The snow shoveling has been easy this winter, compared to most. The usual sequence is still observed: The front deck is cleared first, red plastic grain scoop — the red blade is preferred, as the gray ones grow brittle in extreme cold and are prone to cracking — sliding smoothly on plastic decking. Then comes the front pathway, flagstones in a descending line to the driveway.
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".
