You might say that Michael Renegar is obsessed with the story of Jamestown’s most famous ghost, Lydia. So much so that he has written three books not only on Lydia’s tale, but other mysterious happenings across the area. Renegar is now finishing up a new book, “Looking for ‘Lydia’ – The Thirty Year Search for the Jamestown Hitchhiker,” that focuses on his search for the real Lydia – but with a twist: The woman’s name might not be Lydia at all.
A lot of work has been going on at the former Jamestown News building at 206 E. Main St., both on the exterior and interior. All this is being done for the house to be the new home of Flare’s, a “vintage inspired home décor, garden, clothing, jewelry and anything else beautiful you can think of type of shop,” according to the business’ Facebook page. “The store is meant to be an experience,” said owner Flare DiChiaro, “to come in, take your time, shop and meet people.
The fourth time’s the charm for Henrik Stenson. Stenson’s previous visits to the Wyndham Championship resulted in two missed cuts and one withdrawal – all three resulting in no take-home pay for the Swede. This year, as the winner of the Greensboro tournament at Sedgefield Country Club, he earned a purse of $1,044,000, and he did it without a driver in his bag. It was a contested race this year, with a back-and-forth leaderboard, which included rookie Ollie Schniederjans, Ryan Armour,and Kevin Na.
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".
