AUSTIN, Texas -- A security breach is prompting Austin officials to re-key more than 6,000 lock boxes. Another 17,500 remain compromised but will not be re-keyed for another year or two, an Austin official said in a memo to the Mayor and City Council. Manor Police are investigating a man who had a copy of a special key first responders use to access businesses and apartment complexes across the Austin area.
AUSTIN, Texas - For less than $2 million, traffic engineers tweaked four Austin intersections and found some major improvements. Some changes were as simple as restriping the lanes and changing a few signs. Others involved creating additional turn lanes and building medians. Pedestrians and drivers say they've noticed the changes. "It is getting better than what it was," said Andre Maye, who lives near Rundberg Lane and N Lamar Boulevard.
AUSTIN, Texas - The Tweeter Laureate of Texas is now a judge on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. President Donald Trump appointed Don Willett to the lifetime position. He was sworn in Tuesday.

Willett's known for his social media posts, which he says he's toning down as he assumes a federal court position. The role is one the conservative Republican says he's honored to take.
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".
