AUSTIN, Texas – Federal investigators continue to piece together clues as they work toward finding the person or people responsible for this month's three package explosions across Austin. While investigators have left the scene of the second bombing near Springdale Rd. and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, crime scene tape remains tied around the porch post of the home from the second blast, which happened around 6:44 a.m. Monday. The first was at 6:55 a.m. near Howard Ln. and Harris Ridge Blvd.
AUSTIN, Texas — Efforts to put Austin's zoning laws before voters may be blocked by state law. The process, known as CodeNEXT, has been underway for almost a half decade as the city tries to update its land development code to match the goals of Imagine Austin, the comprehensive plan adopted in 2012. Members of IndyAustin, a Specific Political Action Committee or SPAC, have spent the past six months gathering the required signatures to force a public vote.
AUSTIN, Texas - The owners of Columbus Crew SC haven't given up on Austin yet as they seriously consider a 23.5-acre property near the Domain.

"It has been growing a lot." The city-owned property, known as McKalla Place, is about a quarter mile south of his donut and kolache shop.
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".
