By KYLE LOVERNWilliamson Daily NewsBEECH CREEK, W.Va. - Many may not have heard of the Civil War battle that was fought here in Mingo County in an area known as Beech Creek. But now thanks to the efforts of local historian Eric Simon, a sign has been erected commemorating that historical battle that occurred in 1962. The state of West Virginia was formed out of western Virginia and added to the Union as a direct result of the American Civil War.
If you grew up in the Williamson area in past years most everyone remembers the glory days of the Williamson Midget League for local basketball teams. It was when teams played for their communities and grade schools, not like the current drafting system of the newer Buddy League. You had storied rivalries between local teams. I’m sure many us you have stories of the Town Trojans taking on the Chattaroy Yellowjackets. Or, my alma mater, the Nolan Hornets, battling the East End Elks.
CHARLESTON – It was the North taking the South 10-7 in the annual North-South All-Star football game held Saturday at Laidley Field in Charleston. The South was coached by former Mingo Central head mentor Yogi Kinder, who led the Miners to the Class AA state championship last season. It was only the sixth year for the consolidated school. Kinder had three of his former players on the South Cardinals squad. Running back Joe Hunt, linebacker Caleb Lester and center Robbie Daniels.
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".
