Drawings uncovered by a local monument company are shedding new light on Crawfordsville’s most prominent stonemason.Sidney Speed, who died in 1923, designed and built the 30-foot gravesite memorial for Gen. Lew Wallace at Oak Hill Cemetery. Speed’s handiwork is on display at cemeteries across the state.A box of his sketches and blueprints found its way to the Crawfordsville Monument Co., where it was kept in storage for decades.
As the 200th anniversary of the founding nears, more people are discovering the stories of Montgomery County’s past.Since last fall, 40 new members have joined the local historical society, which operates the Lane Place and helps teach local schoolchildren about county heritage.“That’s really good. Maybe I should stay,” joked Steve Frees, the society’s executive director. Frees, a retired elementary school teacher, is stepping down at the end of the month after 4 1/2 years on the job.
The city wants to know what Crawfordsville’s youngest residents think about the community.Officials are forming a new youth council to involve children in the decision-making process and planning activities or projects. The board is expected to be in place later this year.The move comes as the city places more emphasis on attracting and retaining young professionals with plans for a downtown trail, new parks and collaborative working space at Fusion 54.
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".
