The Oregon Court of Appeals has thrown cold water on a Lane County company’s attempt to siphon millions of gallons of water daily from the McKenzie River. The appeals panel, in a Nov. 15 ruling, said the state Water Resources Commission was correct in denying the application by Willamette Water Co. to draw 22 million gallons of water a day from the McKenzie. The panel said the company had failed to demonstrate that it could put the water to beneficial use within five years.
In the past two years, the city of Eugene has commissioned artists — none from Lane County — to paint large, colorful murals around the city center. Eugene resident Cathy Beyer had questions about the murals, including, “Who is paying for the foreign artists … and why aren’t more of our local talented artists being used this way?”Here are answers — and background information — from city spokeswoman Sarah-Kate Sharkey and Isaac Marquez, the city’s cultural services director.
Hammered by the departure of a string of anchor tenants in the past few years, the Roseburg Valley Mall in Douglas County is now beset by its main lender, U.S. Bank, which says the mall’s owners have defaulted on $11 million in purchase and construction loans.
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".
