The state land use board has sided with a city-supported zone change that would lead to transforming Lot 700 — Morrison Park — into a housing project. Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals issued a decision Friday affirming the City of Hood River’s rezone. The city is partnering with non-profit Mid-Columbia Housing Authority and Columbia Cascade Housing Corporation on plans for affordable housing at the property. Following a hearing process, the city decided in May 2017 to carry out the zone swap.
The Hood River County Board of Commissioners’ presiding member will stand down from his post. Ron Rivers, County chair, announced at Tuesday’s meeting he will not seek re-election next year. Rivers, 74, will close this political chapter after 12 years serving on the board.

Customers can legally pump their own gas around the clock at certain stations in Hood River County, reversing a decades-long ban. A new Oregon law that took effect Jan. 1 lets gas stations run self-service pumps in rural counties with less than 40,000 residents. Among them: Hood River and neighboring Gorge counties Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam and Wheeler. The legislation expands a 2016 statute that allowed the practice in Eastern Oregon during nighttime hours, 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
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".
