There haven’t been many years of Harry A. Plummer’s adult life that didn’t circle around a Catholic school. None of it has been outside the Church. Plummer, now a father of eight — ages 12 to 29 — is the confident but humble freshman superintendent for the Diocese of Phoenix. He formally began serving in June with activity kicking into high gear as students and teachers returned to school in early August.
A single kneeler, commemorative statue, church balcony and plaque remain among the publicly tangible reminders of the saint who traipsed the Valley during a daylong visit 30 years ago. The faithful who followed their heart — and the crowds — to glimpse, if not meet, then Pope John Paul II in Phoenix and Tempe Sept. 14, 1987 have more intimate memories. They had the chance to encounter Christ’s vicar on Earth at seven stops plus a densely-lined motorcade.
Parishioners and staff at Our Lady of the Lake in Lake Havasu City are mourning the loss of Dcn. Thomas Coe who passed away July 9. He was 73. The deacon had marked his 45th wedding anniversary with Maria two days prior. The couple spent more than half that time, 27 years, at Our Lady of the Lake following his ordination Nov. 4, 1989. Dcn. Coe most recently oversaw ministry to the homebound until his retirement a couple of years ago.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
