The Robertson County chapter of Big Brothers and Big Sisters is looking for volunteers to mentor children, and according to Robertson County Director Becky Dove, they're always recruiting. “We tend to have more children that need mentors and not enough of them (mentors),” Dove said. “We accept adult volunteers from all ages.”Once volunteers are interviewed and approved they are matched with children in one of two programs: school-based and community-based, Dove said.
Dozens of Robertson County residents gathered at Springfield Memorial Gardens Saturday to honor the county's veterans. The time of service, 11 a.m., was chosen in remembrance of the end of World War I, which ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month off 1918. Mayor Howard Bradley began by offering a thank you to those who served.
A Greenbrier family has turned a hobby into a new artful business. They may never get rich from the venture, but the quality time they've spent working together as a family has been priceless, according to matriarch Jaylynn Clay. “It gets us all off the electronics,” Clay said. “It gets you off Facebook, it gets you off your work email, any of those things that might tie you down to the couch. My son likes to watch a lot of T.V.
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".
