Some see it as another tax or an invasion of privacy. But Evan Burroughs feels like he’s living in a video game. “Oh it’s a lot of fun,” said Burroughs, one of 800 volunteers who pay the state of Oregon 1.5 cents for every mile they drive. He's also able to track his speed, how often he uses his brakes, and how long he idles, thanks to a device plugged into his car's computer system. “If we want a good, safe road system,” said Burroughs.
At least that’s how his attorney Jeanette Boothe described her client’s reaction to news two Shelton police officers will not be charged for their actions during a May arrest of Heflin. “He teared up, he looked extremely upset,” said Boothe, “He said how can they do that? They tried to kill me.”Booth said Heflin suffered multiple broken bones in his face when he was arrested.
That Christmas tree might cost you more this year. Doug Hundley, spokesperson for The National Christmas Tree Association, said tree prices could be 5 to 10 percent higher than last year. Hundley blamed drop in production, especially in the top Christmas tree growing states, Oregon and North Carolina. He said fewer trees are being harvested this year, because fewer were planted during the great recession.

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".
