Editor’s note: Compiled from reports to Tacoma police and the Pierce County Sheriff’s office. Sept. 15: Every now and then, cops pick up a rare bird — the courteous arrestee. The tabs on the maroon 1997 Saturn SL were expired. The sheriff’s deputy spotted it in the 2200 block of 208th Street East in Spanaway. He turned on his emergency lights and pulled the car over. The driver, 28, didn’t have his license, but he said he was glad the deputy stopped him.
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — On Sunday, Sept. 17, 25 years after her disappearance, Misty Copsey will speak — in spirit. "My name is Misty Copsey," she will say. "I am missing and I need your help. "In a double-barrelled social media push, the Puyallup Police Department will devote its Facebook and Twitter feeds to the 14-year-old who vanished after a visit to the Puyallup Fair in 1992. The twin feeds will be hers and hers alone for the entire day.
Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist faces a possible disciplinary hearing that could lead to the suspension of his license to practice law and threaten his ability to continue to serve in elected office. The Sept. 8 recommendation from the Washington State Bar Association’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel qualifies as one of the biggest bombshells in Lindquist’s turbulent seven years in office: a rare case of the bar association considering sanctions against an elected prosecutor.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
