Editor’s note: Compiled from reports to Tacoma police and the Gig Harbor Police Department. Jan. 8: The fake $100 bill was such an obvious fake that the Gig Harbor police officer could tell even before he fished it out of the hotel toilet bowl. Officers had been called to the hotel in response to a reported fight in one of the rooms. Standing at the door, they heard sounds of scuffling and thumping. Inside were four people: two women and two men, all in their late 20s and early 30s.
It’s a long way from reality, but sooner or later, one of Pierce County’s lesser-known landmarks will give way to the inevitable bulldozer. The site in question is the Brookdale Golf Club, a small but venerable public course built in 1931, tucked away in the suburbs of Parkland. Owner Chris Jones hasn’t sold the 146-acre course yet, but a deal is in the works. Puyallup developers Azure Green have filed permit applications that envision 388 homes on the site.
A federal judge has denied the City of Lakewood’s request to overturn a $15.1 million jury verdict stemming from the the fatal 2013 shooting of an unarmed black man in Fife. In a 69-page ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Rothstein rejected every argument the city’s attorneys offered in their efforts to undo the findings that stemmed from the shooting of Leonard Thomas, who died on his front porch in Fife with his four-year-old son in his arms.
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".
