This past summer, in early August, I spent a day fishing largemouth bass on Black Lake near Natchitoches. There was one thing interesting about this trip. It was the first time I actually had seen a “drawdown,” on a lake designed to kill giant salvinia – an invasive plant species that chokes lakes and waterways. It’s strange seeing water so low you actually can see the root system of cypress and tupelo trees.
Two Tri-City area boys basketball games pushed back a day due to inclement weather again have been at least postponed because a second consecutive day of anticipated inclement weather prompted closure of St. Mary Parish schools. Morgan City High School was scheduled to play at Lafayette High Wednesday, while Central Catholic was to meet St. John in Plaquemine. No makeup date for either game has been announced.
Morris Jones Jr., a native and resident of Morgan City, died Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018, at his residence. Jones Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements, which are incomplete at this time.
The closure of school in St. Mary Parish Tuesday due to inclement weather has forced the postponement of all athletic events Tuesday evening. Those events include boys’ and girls’ basketball games and boys’ and girls’ soccer.
The Kaplan Lady Pirates defeated Berwick 49-36 in District 8-3A action in Kaplan Friday. Kaplan led just 9-5 after a quarter of play before exploding for 21 points in the second period and limiting Berwick to four points for a 30-9 halftime advantage. Kaplan extended its lead to 41-16 after three quarters before Berwick closed the game in final period with a 20-5 scoring advantage. Maci Broussard led Berwick with 13 points, while Madison Carline also reached double figures with 11.
Another day of school cancelled in St. Mary Parish due to inclement meant, at the very least, the postponement of more high school sporting events that were scheduled for Thursday. Games set for Thursday that won’t be played today include: a nondistrict contest between Morgan City High School boys basketball at McMain, Central Catholic’s girls’ basketball nondistrict contest at Patterson and Berwick’s District 8-3A girls and boys contests at home against Abbeville.
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".
