In February 1963, folks in Lucedale are believed to have experienced their last Mardi Gras celebration. That is, until 2018. In 2017, a group of Lucedale residents decided the town needed to celebrate once again.
The annual Krewe of Little Rascals children’s parade, sponsored by the city of Pascagoula, will march at 1 p.m., Feb. 3. The parade takes a slightly different route this year, starting at the green space at the corner of Delmas Avenue and Magnolia. The parade then goes along Delmas to Canty Street, then onto Watts Street and back to the green space at Magnolia and Delmas. Lineup begins at noon. Participation is open to all children to age 12 with those under 6 accompanied by an adult.
Impressed by two women’s krewes in New Orleans, the founders of the new Krewe of Salacia wanted a similar group for women on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Cheli Strumila and Gretchen David worked closely with the Krewe of Neptune to ensure their new group met the criteria for a parading group. Salacia will parade along with Neptune, which rolls at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 10 in Biloxi. The krewe’s name is drawn from Roman mythology. Salacia was the wife and queen of Neptune, god of the sea.
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".
