St. Augustine Beach residents say sand has been removed from dunes at the end of 12th Lane, and police are investigating. “They pretty much took a giant chunk out,” St. Augustine Beach Police Department Cmdr. Thomas Ashlock said. The investigation was ongoing and had been forwarded for follow-up by a detective this week, according to Ashlock. Dune destruction is a first-degree misdemeanor, but no charge had been filed, he said.
Floridians interested in proposing a change to the state’s constitution probably have about a month to get their ideas to the Constitution Revision Commission. The 37-member commission is considering a Sept. 22 deadline for accepting proposals, according to a news release. As directed by the Florida Constitution, the commission forms every 20 years to review the constitution and possibly propose changes for voters to consider — this time, those proposals would go on a ballot in November 2018.
Deborah Warrick says her life’s work started rather unexpectedly, literally by accident. The biologist and founder of the St. Augustine Wild Reserve broke her back skydiving in 1981, and her instructor gave her a wolf puppy as a get-well present. “That’s what got me hooked on wolves, so I started rescuing wolves first for many, many years and got into the cats in the ’90s, and now I do a little bit of everything,” Warrick said while touring the reserve.
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".
