MIDLAND — It was five years ago today that a Union Pacific train traveling through Midland collided with a Show of Support parade float, killing four wounded veterans and injuring 14 other people. The ensuing months and years forced the city to look at its outdated parade policy and the nonprofit to discontinue the annual parade held before its evening celebration of wounded veterans and their wives.
The Midland City Council will have the opportunity to meet and greet the three finalists for the police department’s next police chief. Those finalists are Midland Police Department Deputy Police Chief Jeff Darr, Sam Dotson of St. Louis and Bill Heim of Reading, Pennsylvania. They are seeking the position left vacant after former Police Chief Price Robinson retired on Aug. 31. Robinson had been police chief since 2008.
Riddick: Lee principal suspends use of Dixie in its fight songThe Lee High School band will not incorporate “Dixie” into its school fight song,” Midland ISD Superintendent Orlando Riddick has confirmed. Riddick said Lee High School Principal Stan VanHoozer had conversations with his school’s band director and with the superintendent’s office about the best interest of the students (particularly the safety of the students when traveling not to incorporate “Dixie” notes into the fight song).
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".
