There have been 74 Sunflower County Livestock Shows and number 75 takes place on Saturday in Sunflower, Mississippi – the dust will be kicking up as cows, sheep, pigs, goats and even chickens will be strutting their stuff for judges as the Sunflower County Livestock Show will be in full force. Sunflower County extension agent Alex Deason will be there helping run the show with the rest of the office staff, volunteers and 4H participants. Head, Heart, Hands and Health – 4H.
The first one for Anne Williams Martin, now Vetrano, was in Moorhead. She won the Miss MDJC Pageant in the late 1970s and that put her in the pool of contestants for the Miss Mississippi Pageant. The Greenville native didn’t win there and eventually began her long run in TV news and freelance writing (author of Delta Hot Tamales: History, Stores & Recipes) and other entrepreneurial endeavors.
The newest year began with a doctor-befuddling virus I was told to “drown” and take ibuprofen for pain and to get plenty of rest. Grape juice, some dastardly “shot” of some sort of immunity potion my wife found at some raw juice joint locally, lots of hot tea, a bit of Netflix and my own personal couch to convalesce on became my medicine. Oh, and that red Old Navy fleece hoodie I found in the top of my closet and a couple of new pillows have been doctoring on me.
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".
