WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Six Wichita Army veterans are true friends. They include two Purple Heart recipients and even a pair of brothers. “So, we all got together, and we stayed together, and this is what we have right here. Good brotherhood here, excellent brotherhood,” said Mike Marino. Not only did they grow up right here in Wichita, but they were shipped over to Vietnam to serve in the Army together. Sadly, many of the guys haven’t been able to leave the demons of the war behind.

On a Sunday morning, KSN visited three churches in Wichita: Methodist, Evangelical, and Catholic. All different, but much the same. All with a belief in God and Jesus Christ. But are local churches losing the people who pack their pews? What about Kansas? Are Kansans faithful in the pews, skipping church, or have they stopped believing in God altogether?
CONCORDIA, Kan. (KSNW) – In 1850, some 15,000 children were homeless in New York City. They were left to fend for themselves, to eat and find shelter. There was a solution that involved putting them on a train, in hopes of finding a better life. Now, their lives are forever remembered on a main street in Kansas at the National Orphan Train Complex in Concordia. Shaley George is the curator at the museum.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
