While the Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017, stretched across the United States from west to east, a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 — also a Monday — will travel from Mexico southwest to northeast into Canada. All but the northern tip of Ste. Genevieve County will be included in totality, and the duration is expected to be 2 minutes, 39 seconds (similar to the duration of totality for being on the center line in last month’s eclipse).
It will be the final leg of an escort to bring two flags — an American flag and a POW/MIA flag — from the Vietnam Wall Memorial in Washington, D.C., to the site of the full-sized black granite Vietnam wall being constructed in Perryville. Riders will leave Arnold at 8:30 a.m. and arrive in Perryville at approximately 10 a.m., with a ceremony beginning at 11 a.m.All riders are welcome to participate in the ride.

Musical performances were planned throughout the weekend. One Ste. Genevieve County resident, James Brochtrup, who talked with the Herald earlier this summer about the disturbance caused by the Cosmic Reunion event around Memorial Day and another musical event in May, said this past weekend’s event continued the trend. Brochtrup contacted the Herald by phone or text around 3 a.m. Saturday morning and throughout Saturday night and into Sunday morning to report on the noise levels.
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".
