The future of Orlando’s historic Grand Avenue School remains uncertain, but records show Orange County Public Schools began laying the groundwork to demolish the facility years before its doors closed on June 7. School district officials stress that they have not yet decided what to do with the school, where students in the Holden Heights neighborhood south of downtown have been educated for 90 years.
Current members of the group that a century ago placed a time capsule in the base of the Confederate statue known as “Johnny Reb” say they know what’s inside of it — and they’d like to have it back. A picture of Gen. Robert E. Lee, Confederate money, a proclamation and a Confederate flag were placed in the small metal box when the statue was erected in 1911, Patricia Schnurr, of the United Daughters of the Confederacy Annie Coleman Chapter, said Thursday.
As Orlando workers dismantled the Confederate memorial at Lake Eola Park on Tuesday to move it to Greenwood Cemetery, they discovered hidden in the statue’s base a rusted box believed to be a time capsule, likely placed there at least a century ago. Don Price, Greenwood sexton, said the box weighed about 3 pounds. City officials say they do not plan to open it immediately because of concerns that the wrong conditions might damage its contents.

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".
