In last week’s column, Horace Harrod, who turned 100 years old on Sept. 17, reflected back on his life and some of his experiences, including service in the 28th Division of the U. S. Army during WWII. His story continues as he recalled crossing the English Channel and landing on Normandy Beach about a week after the June 6 D-Day Invasion:We went into Paris in September. From there, we headed for that Hurtgen Forest.
Crestwood resident Horace Harrod took part in the Veterans Oral History Project at the Oldham County History Center. This Sunday, Sept. 17, he will celebrate his 100th birthday. Harrod still lives at his home in Crestwood with his son, Horace, Jr., and daughter-in-law, Barbara, living close by. I caught up with Horace a few weeks ago to find out how he was doing and his perspective reaching 100 years:My parents were John Hayden Harrod and Mary Harrod.
The Grand United Order of Odd Fellows Washington Lodge #1315 has tradition, history and place in New Castle. Formed in 1872, it provided a place for fellowship and support during a very rough era of Reconstruction after the Civil War. In August 2015, I wrote about fundraising efforts to restore the Washington Lodge, which was under the threat of collapse from disrepair and neglect.
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".
