In June 1884, the Pomona Times-Courier pounded itself on its chest, declaring Pomona was the sparkling gem of the region. It made it sound like the closest thing to the Garden of Eden since that mix-up with a snake. Not bad for a town that really was only a couple of years old and sometimes called “Monkeytown.”Of course, every other Southern California newspaper felt the same way about its little community.
The Ontario Chaffey Community Show Band will perform its annual Veterans Day concert next Monday offering many of the traditional military marches and anthems we come to expect for such a tribute. But in the midst of familiar pieces written by John Philip Sousa, Irving Berlin and Lee Greenwood will be a rather unusual selection, a tribute to Gen. George A. Custer.
We all should mark the annual Veterans Day remembrance on Saturday by paying tribute to all that have worn military uniforms and faced the country’s enemies and challenges. I thought it was worth taking a look at the archives to talk about a few of these for the Inland Empire, all heroes who may not have received full recognition for their service. — Roy W. Evans of San Bernardino had a spectacular 1945 as a pilot with the Eighth Air Force in World War II.

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".
