The Kentucky State Fair celebrates its 115th year in 2017 and is once again packing its 11 days with music, much of it free. Freedom Hall will be home to the likes of Alabama, Vanilla Ice, Tone Loc, Coolio, Travis Tritt and the Charlie Daniels Band. Outside, the Turf Concert Series in Cardinal Stadium will have the Oak Ridge Boys, Ginuwine, Blues Traveller, the Turtles and Elvis Presley.
The pipe-smoking contest and the ugly lamp competition are among the dearly departed, but the 113th rendition of the Kentucky State Fair has a bunch of new offerings to entertain, educate and amaze. The changes include a fast-entry traffic plan, some new eats, and a renamed and relocated midway.
Tolling on the three Ohio River bridges has generated a little more than $38 million through the first half of 2017, slightly ahead of pre-opening projections. RiverLink, the electronic bridge-monitoring network, recorded 7.86 million crossings between April 1 and June 31 â€” a 13 percent increase over the first three months since the bridge opened, according to data released Tuesday. Nearly $35 million had been collected from the tolls, which was split evenly between Kentucky and Indiana.
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".
