My pen has covered a lot of ground — from failed justice in small-town Arkansas to new frontiers in the Gulf Coast seafood industry. The stories I most like to write, however, always seem to involve food — as sustenance, as metaphor and as common ground. These days, I write a lot about how techno...
I have watched with interest as the proposed Gulf Coast Marine Fisheries Hatchery and Enhancement Center has dominated the local news cycle in recent months. I have no dogs in this fight, and I see valid arguments on both sides, but I’ve grown frustrated by a debate that has, at times, seemed shallow and short-sighted. We are at a pivotal moment in our city’s history — without a doubt.
It was a warm March afternoon when I joined Jake Summers for a “cow hunt.” I’d spent the last 12 hours holed up in a grimy motel room on the outskirts of Apalachicola, Florida, guzzling coffee and chugging Dayquil. I was still recovering from the prior day’s assignment, a magazine story about one of the last oyster tong makers in Florida, a man named Rodney Richards.
This year - in a departure from the typical "what are you wearing?" awards coverage - PwC plans to highlight the causes that matter to celebrities ranging from Hamilton's Brandon Victor Dixon to Julia Ormond ("Legends of the Fall," "Mad Men," "Witches of East End").
I and my colleague Kevin Robinson received the Gold Medal for Public Service among Division "C" papers in the state for our coverage of the April 2014 explosion at the Escambia County Central Booking and Detention Facility.

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".
