Mr. Jones was born in Roanoke Rapids on March 18, 1937, to the late William Walter and Mary Peffer Jones. He served his country in the U.S. Navy, retiring after 20 years as a chief hospital corpsman. He was a master woodworker who proudly shared whatever he made with others. He was a people person who never met a stranger, and he was happiest when he was working for others. He was a loving husband, father and friend to all.
Fall enrollment at the Newnan campus of the University of West Georgia soared by nearly one-third over last year, according to figures administrators released last week. The 979 students signed up for the 83 classes at the campus is 31.5 percent higher than the 744 in place last fall. The number is edging toward the school’s 1,000 interim goal. “I’m so excited about the growth,” said Provost Michael Crafton.

To the editor: Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for surgeries or hormones for service members or members of their families who want to switch from one gender to another. That is particularly true at a time when our nation is $20 trillion in debt and running $700 billion annual deficits, and our military lacks the resources it needs to rebuild after 16 years of war in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere.
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".
