Davey Blackburn, the young pastor whose dramatic ups and downs have been followed closely by many people in Indianapolis, will talk about his life March 30 on Good Friday. The event, sponsored by the YMCA, is at the Indiana Roof Ballroom, 140 W. Washington St. Admission is free but you have to register. The Roof has room for 800 people. The program is 6:30 to 9 a.m. Breakfast is included.
The following is excerpted from a story originally published in the Indianapolis Star June 4, 1999, on the occasion of the evangelist Billy Graham's final swing through Indianapolis. Graham died Wednesday at age 99. Reporter Charlie Miller died in 2016 at age 88. The Billy Graham thing started Thursday night, and one person who stopped by was the old newspaperman Charlie Miller.
On Feb. 22, the Athenaeum gets some new signage, and a difficult — and timely — chapter of Indianapolis' history gets dredged up, a time when the mistrusted, reviled "others" were German-Americans. They were bullied into speaking English only, and their culture was tamped down at every turn — sauerkraut became "liberty cabbage"; even Dachshunds felt the heat and for a time in some quarters became "liberty hounds," or "badger dogs."
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".
