In 1970, Southaven was an unincorporated, 9,000-resident town. It was so sleepy that it lacked even a McDonald's. By its incorporation in 1980, about 16,000 people called it home, and by 2000, it held about 29,000 residents. Today, more than 53,000 people live in the fast-growing city, located just over the state line from Memphis. Earlier this month, developer Brian Hill announced plans to rectify that, with a $200 million mixed-use development he calls "Silo Square."
Lehman-Roberts Co., doing business as Roberts Family Properties, purchased the building, which is located one block north of Central Avenue. It will serve as the company's new corporate offices, said spokeswoman Sarah Foster. From its current headquarters on Wilson Street in Soulsville, Lehman-Roberts has been a staple of that community for decades. Foster said company leaders had wanted to keep its headquarters in Soulsville but weren't able to find a place suitable.
Richard Smith, president and CEO of FedEx Trade Networks, sold an 8,200-square-foot home in East Memphis last week for $1.9 million, about four months after purchasing a 15,000-square-foot house, also in East Memphis, for $4.8 million. The son of FedEx Corp. founder Fred Smith, who was recently elected chairman of the board for the Greater Memphis Chamber, had owned the smaller East Memphis property since 2010.
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".
