About 50 military veterans and family members gathered on Veterans Day at the former Westminster Armory on Longwell Avenue. As long as anyone can remember, Carroll Post 31 of the American Legion has conducted a Veterans Day service at the historic armory. During the “Armed Forces Salute” portion of the program veterans representing each branch of the military enjoyed the opportunity to stand proudly when their military branch's song was played.
This weekend we’ve been observing Veterans Day. Fortunately, in the last number of years, Veterans Day has taken on a renewed meaning and sense of purpose. The Vietnam War has been over for 40 years. The memories of lost friends and loved ones who served are indelibly etched in our minds as permanently as the 58,939 names that are etched in the black granite memorial that was dedicated on Nov. 13, 1982 in Washington, D.C.
According to popular tradition it was at 2 in the afternoon on Oct.31, 1517, when a relatively unknown monk named Dr. Martin Luther decided to take on the entire known world — the Roman Catholic Church and the Holy Roman Empire; and nailed a “list of questions and propositions for debate” on the front door of the Wittenberg Castle church. Luther was born on Nov. 10, 1483.

The helicopter circling above on the western-end of Westminster, is looking for an elderly man who is lost out in the cold. Please join me in prayers that he will be found soon and returned to safety. 9:45 p.m. Monday evening, Nov. 13, 2017 https://t.co/ipHlfjIT87
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".
