Bus riders in the east Ventura County cities of Simi Valley and Moorpark have long complained about the lack of a direct fixed route line to west county. Starting this week, they won't have to grumble about it anymore. The Ventura County Transportation Commission on Friday will launch the first direct, fixed-route intercity bus line connecting Simi Valley and Moorpark with the west county cities of Camarillo, Oxnard and Ventura via Highways 118, 34 and 101.
The Simi Valley City Council made it clear this week that it wants to take a “go slow” approach to Proposition 64, which a year ago legalized marijuana use statewide for persons 21 years or older. The council on Monday night unanimously passed an urgency ordinance which temporarily extends a ban the council adopted late last year that was due to expire Dec. 3. The council also introduced a non-urgency ordinance that, when adopted at a future meeting, will more permanently extend the ban.
The Simi Valley/Moorpark Tea Party is one of hundreds of tea party and other conservative groups that are beneficiaries of recent settlements of federal lawsuits they filed against the Internal Revenue Service for unfairly scrutinizing them when they applied for tax-exempt status. The Simi Valley/Moorpark Tea Party is believed no longer to be active. Founder Doug Crosse died last year, Simi Valley City Councilman Mike Judge, a former member of the local party, said Thursday.

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".
