POTTSVILLE — Charlene Hertzog has a tattoo on her left wrist. In May, the board of directors at the Schuylkill YMCA, 520 N. Centre St., Pottsville, hired her as the branch operations and membership manager, the leader of the staff. On Tuesday, Hertzog, West West Terrace, Branch Township, discussed the job, some new initiatives at the Y and talked a bit about herself and why she commissioned an artist to decorate her wrist.
POTTSVILLE — Nothing marks a moment in time like a banner headline across a sheet of pulp paper. So says Morris Brill, 75, of Norwegian Township, who has been collecting hundreds of newspapers for years. “All of them are in archival polyurethane sleeves,” Brill said Nov. 15 as he picked through a stack dedicated to World War II. He collected newspapers for a few reasons. Sometimes he was fascinated by how major events were communicated to the masses.
After Steven Allan Brobst of Sugarloaf shot his wife Tuesday evening at a club in Zion Grove, he put the still warm semi-automatic pistol to his head, according to police. “Steven pointed the gun at his own head, but the gun jammed,” state police at Frackville said in the affidavit of probable cause. Police charged Brobst, 62, with four felonies, one count of criminal attempt-homicide, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of carrying a firearm without a license.
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".
