The former director of a Lacombe area recreation district was charged Thursday (July 20) with theft involving recreation district funds, North Shore District Attorney Warren Montgomery said. A bill of information charges Anthony Benson Andre, 58, of theft over $750 but less than $5,000. The charge follows an audit by the state Legislative Auditor's Office that found personal charges on Recreation District No. 4's credit card and undocumented travel expenses.
Two Slidell police officers were in the right place at the right time Wednesday night to stop an attempted suicide, the Slidell Police Department said Thursday (July 20).

The Slidell officers were on patrol and noticed a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot.
The No. 2 in command of the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office abruptly left his post Wednesday (July 19). Chief Deputy Fred Oswald, who had also been chief deputy under former Sheriff Jack Strain and was kept in that post when current Sheriff Randy Smith took office in July 2016, retired, Smith said. But while Smith insisted in an interview that he had not fired Oswald, Oswald told The Advocate that he had been fired and was not given any reason for the action.
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".
