As I was headed out to East Hill Cemetery, I noticed that the cattle barn on Third and Water Street was gone. All that was left was a lot of smashed cement blocks and debris from the wooden seats along the side of the ring. When that particular building was built I lived right across the street from it. Our house is where the vacant lot is today. Grandma Abernathy lived on one side, my family on the other.
August was our final month of the summer and as such there were things to look forward to. And some not so great but necessary, I guess. We knew there was the two weeks at Lake Douglas that I liked. The obligatory trip to Indianapolis for school clothing. This was not too bad and I liked the part when we would stop at Morrow’s Nut House on our way home for some fresh cashews. Both my mother and I loved Morrows which made it a stop each time we went to Indy.
For some unknown reason, I have decided to think about my time in the US Army. I was a member of the HQ and HQ Battery 3rd Infantry Division Artillery. And from 1957 to 1960 I was in Kitzingen, West Germany. Being a Headquarters unit we had a lot of people in many different jobs. Mine was the prime Forward Air Controller of the division. Each Battle Group had a company of artillery and that had a FAC theoretically to be run by the Air Force Europe and my FAC.
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".
