Bud Ehlert first saw it 200 yards off his deck on Pascagoula’s Lake Yazoo at the Inner Harbor. He took a picture. Legends are made from less. This one is the Loch Ness Monster of Pascagoula’s Lake Yazoo. Some say she came down the Pascagoula River. Others believe she came from the depths of the Gulf of Mexico. All Bud knows is that more than a month ago, she appeared to be watching him from the lake. Then just as quickly, she was gone. Now she’s on the other side of the lake.
Gulfport Phillip Ladner knew he had a big catch when he hauled in a stingray that covered the bottom of his boat. The trick, then was getting him to the scales Tuesday. Ladner, a Waveland resident, said he caught the 149 pound, 9 ounce ray in the Louisiana marsh after a 30-45 minute fight. It overtook a 112-pound, 5-ounce entry caught by Tito Lopez of Carriere earlier in the tournament. But by the time he got to the Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, the scales were closed.
Chuck Loftis is in a constant battle with Mother Nature. The Harrison County Sand Beach director is facing another round of repairs after Tropical Storm Cindy caused significant beach erosion in certain areas. The beach was already in bad shape since the last major replenishment project in 2008, and a storm with high winds in early May made things worse. It’s not a new problem. “This has happened since the sand was pumped in there,” Loftis said on Monday.
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".
