A judge wants a Eugene murder suspect to spend 30 days at an Oregon State Hospital facilty before ruling if the man is mentally fit to stand trial. Lane County Circuit Judge Maurice Merten last week issued an order authorizing Joshua Jaschke’s monthlong stay at a state-run psychiatric hospital. The decision comes after a June 9 court hearing on Jaschke’s mental fitness. The hearing was scheduled after Jaschke’s lawyers asserted in court filings that their client is unable to assist in his defense.
A North Carolina man who was drunk when he shot his brother-in-law in the leg during a February visit to Eugene pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge and will serve 18 months of probation. Charles Pressburg, 44, entered a guilty plea to a single count of negligently wounding another. Lane County prosecutors dismissed a fourth-degree assault charge in exchange for the plea. Pressburg is a combat veteran who was honorably discharged from the military last year after 26 years of service.
SPRINGFIELD — The city of Springfield’s website says Councilor Joe Pishioneri is employed as a Lane County sheriff’s deputy. But in fact Pishioneri’s 31-year career in law enforcement ended Feb. 1, after the Lane County District Attorney’s Office concluded that he had probably committed theft and then misled investigators about his conduct. Prosecutors say Pishioneri engaged in apparent financial “double dipping” related to his roles as both a full-time, paid deputy and a volunteer city councilor.
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".
