Fess Parker may have been the greatest PR man nationally for the raccoon. His “coon skin” hat adorned the heads of many a young boy and probably girl during the 50s and 60s as he portrayed both Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone on our TV and movie screens. Across the south many might turn to the late comedian Jerry Clower and his regaling of coon hunting tales with the Ledbetter Family. But those two gentlemen are not in the Coon Hunter Association Hall of Fame to my knowledge.
It’s not unusual for folks from northern states to migrate south. But normally it’s for a season or when it comes time to retire. But for Paul Good, a move to Mississippi was the prudent one to make for his family and for him to stay in the vocation he loved – farming. This harvest season will be number 71 for Mr. Good when it’s all said and done. And even though he’s in his 90s, he’s slowed down a bit but retirement doesn’t come up.
“It comes down to a simple choice then. Get busy living or get busy dying.” – Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption. “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘Wow!’” – Hunter S. Thompson. In January of 2012, the late Greg Murtha got busy living and as well, got busy dying. Doctors told him, “Mr.
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".
