Abilene police feel they've been had. Now, Chief Stan Standridge said the department is going to seek the maximum penalty for those involved. Standridge said Jose Robert Avalos, 29, who was reported missing on Jan. 12, most likely staged a shooting scene in the 400 block of Fannin Street with his girlfriend.

In November 2016, Taylor County residents hit the polls as did folks across the United States. Locally, 73 percent of voters cast a ballot in favor of Republican Donald J. Trump for president. After his first year in office, it's possible some of his support could be slipping. Trump, who begins his second year in office Saturday, enters with a historically low approval rating nationally of about 40 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight.com's poll aggregator.
The flu is no laughing matter. Luckily, I've been able to steer clear of it this year — yes, I knocked on wood — but it has certainly ravaged the city over the past month-plus. It has been felt particularly hard in schools, where student absences were noteworthy both leaving for the two-week Christmas break and returning from it. In the Abilene Independent School District, especially, the week before taking time off from school was a bad time.
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".
