MEADVILLE, Miss. — Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Red — Texas Red, that is. Toughest outlaw in Franklin County, or so some said. But who knows for sure? Don Simonton of Fayette, who is writing a book on Red, presented some of his findings at a Franklin County Museum gathering — the largest crowd museum president Jennifer Griffith had seen, with 44 people present. Simonton came both to talk and to listen. He was hoping some people present might remember Red, and they did.
On?Jan. 9, 1940, Red and Oklahoma split up at Natchez, with the Kid going west and Red northeast. The Mississippi River bridge was then under construction, so it's not clear how the Kid got across, possibly in disguise on a ferry. He was never heard from again, though some said he settled in Monterey,?La., as a school teacher. Mamie Halford, 86, said, "I?was a little girl with big ears and I remember sitting around listening to the older folks talk about it.
Forman, who keeps the pristine Army-green vehicle in an enclosed shop, says he only takes it riding "if conditions are right," meaning no mud, dust or pollen. He completed the restoration in 2015 but has only put 40 miles on the vehicle. He takes it mainly to car shows, and then in a covered car-hauler. Forman learned how to be a mechanic from his father, the late James "Banie" Forman, who also served in the Army's First Calvary in the Korean War.
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".
