Lexington city leaders finalized Thursday night an agreement between the city and Lexington Cemetery to move two Confederate statues there. The Lexington Cemetery board previously hadconditionally agreed to take the statues, but a final deal between the cemetery and city had not yet been reached. With Thursday's vote by the Urban County Council to approve the deal, the city is now another step closer to moving the statues to their new home.
It is a tough goodbye for many in the Pulaski County community. They lost four well-known community members in a deadly plane crash over the weekend in Barren County. Scott Foster, his son Noah, Kyle Stewart and Doug Whitaker were all coming home from a hunting trip Sunday when their plane crashed, killing all four. On Wednesday night, a huge crowd showed up at Grace Baptist Church to pay their respects at the visitation for Doug Whitaker, an Air Force veteran, attorney and police chaplain.
Friends and family gathered in Marion County on Tuesday night to remember a sheriff's deputy killed in the line of duty five years ago. Deputy Anthony Rakes was shot as he walked up to a stopped car on U.S. 68 near Lebanon back in 2012. On Tuesday, family and friends gathered outside the sheriff's office for a candlelight vigil in Deputy Rakes' memory. "I'll always know he was doing his job, and liked what he was doing," said Regina Ewing, Rakes' sister. "He died doing his job that he loved."
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".
