Anyone who's ever driven Interstate 459 north and tried to exit onto Highway 280 knows it can be a challenge. "It's difficult, but you just do it,” says driver Jake Carroll. "You have people on this side flying in. You got people flying this side,” driver Kevin Chester tries to explain. “Everybody's trying to cross paths.”Matalia Conner says living in Tuscaloosa, she rarely comes to the area, but noticed the problem first hand Friday.
A dramatic crime spree early Friday morning ended with a Moody man behind bars facing six felony charges. 36-year-old Dannie Wade Buchanan has been charged with two counts of burglary, attempted murder, kidnapping, robbery, and theft of property.

When the Wenonah High Marching Dragons take to the field, they deliver a treat. It’s one band members look forward to. “It's like a thrill to go on the field and play your field show. It gives you a drive just to keep doing, to keep going,” says senior trombone player De’Marcus Bimbo. “You have to pay attention, be focused and dedicated,” senior baritone player Symone Kirkland. These days, they're playing in T-shirts, shorts and khakis. For the last eight years, the band has been without uniforms.
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".
