NEWSMAKER Over the last few days, there have been a lot of headlines that could have a strong impact on the City of Dallas. Mayor Mike Rawlings appeared on Inside Texas Politics to discuss the potential move of a second Amazon headquarters to Dallas, what’s next for school crossing guards, Governor Greg Abbott’s property tax plan, and those rental bikes scattered all over the city.

DALLAS – The Texas Ethics Commission is investigating whether J.J. Koch offered a pay off if a fellow candidate dropped out of the race against him. "This does not belong in Texas. It may happen in Washington D.C. today, but it does not belong in Texas," said Stephen Stanley, R-Candidate for Dallas County Commission District 2. When Commissioner Mike Cantrell announced his retirement from that office, attorney J.J. Koch was first in the race.
The U.S. Health and Human Services Department will bring more than 800 children — all undocumented immigrants — to facilities in Ellis and Rockwall counties starting Thursday, WFAA has confirmed. The children were captured in the Rio Grande Valley trying to enter the U.S. illegally.

@_TillyBee I think it was in priorities. On one hand, you’re paying $20M to a presenter... while on the other you could be funding that much more investigative journalism, holding powerful accountable.
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".
