Quick Search Tips
The easiest way to search is using the quick search. The quick search box is located on the top every page.
There are 2 ways to search for a story/article.
First, by default is the story search. The story search as the name implies will be searching the body of the story as well as the headline and brief. Use descriptive words to describe exactly what you're looking for. More general terms will give a larger number of results. After you have typed in your word(s) Click on GO. You will be taken to the search results page. The search result page lists all results by date and score. If your search produced no results you will receive this message- "No Matches Found". If you still are having troubles producing results you may want to try using the Advanced Search.
Second, is the site search. Select the site radio button and enter one or more words that you would like to search the site for. Click GO.
