Mike McNeill Diary for Friday, August 12, 2022: Search the Archives | Opinion


One of our readers expressed frustration with the “Search” feature on our website. While the “Search” block is useful, we don’t recommend using it if you have something more specific in mind. Use the “Archives” button. If you are viewing this on a personal computer, laptop or tablet, simply look below and to the right of our nameplate. There’s a list of words that says ‘News’, ‘Obituaries’, ‘Community’, ‘Education’, ‘Sports’, ‘Entertainment’, ‘Multimedia’, then ‘Archives’. Click on “Archives” to open a search page. Type in a few keywords, like a name or subject, like “real estate.” Then – and this is very important – enter the “from” and “to” dates, for example from 01/01/2022 to 12/08/2022. We also recommend setting the results per page to 100. The search procedure for “Archives” is different on smart phones. Go to our website and look for the three horizontal lines at the top left. Tap it and scroll down to “Archives” at the bottom and follow the instructions above. The use of date blocks is important because we have been storing information for 12 years. Over 109,000 files exist. In our example, there are 640 files that include both the words “real” and “estate”. You don’t want to go through all that. Our archives are useful, complete and free.

We’ve noticed bits and pieces here and there of Arkansas school gymnasiums installing shot clocks. State high school basketball will have 35 second shot clocks from the 2022 season.

Gasoline prices continue to fall in the Magnolia region.

Five years ago, we reported that Pulaski Tech hired Magnolian Dr. Marla Strecker as provost. CLICK HERE to see the story.

Our new online poll asks readers if they approve of the Magnolia School Board awards unique bonuses to teachers and support staffI. Reader response has been strong – there were over 130 responses in the first 12 hours of the survey.

Happy to see you again, University of Southern Arkansas students, faculty and staff.
