GASTON COUNTY, N.C. -- With religious communities on edge after the mass shooting at a Texas church, Gaston County law enforcement is now arming places of worship with a plan. "Giving the churches the tools on how to create their own system to the level they want," said Sheriff Alan Cloninger. The Gaston County Sheriff's Office is not the typical place for churchgoers to congregate on a Wednesday night.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Parents are again left with a tough decision after another Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bus burst into flames Tuesday afternoon. Now, some are questioning the safety of their child's school bus. Tuesday's bus blaze comes less than a month after another CMS bus burst into flames in east Charlotte. "It could be something tragic," said Kevin Omar. Thankfully, no kids were on bus 188 when it caught fire and the driver was able to get out before it was too late.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Violent road rage is on the rise and it's a dangerous behavior that can leave scary consequences. Law enforcement is seeing a drastic increase in driver-involved shootings, even using their vehicles as weapons. In the most recent case, the driver is telling NBC Charlotte someone rammed his car trying to run him off the road. "It was just like something you'd see out of a movie," said Thomas Casey, a road rage victim.

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".
