A former Commissioner has settled two lawsuits against Lane County. Rob Handy will receive $89,000 dollars in the settlement. Rob Handy was a Lane County Commissioner from 2009 to 2013. He sued the county in state court under the Oregon public meetings law over an “emergency” meeting that was held by 3 commissioners without informing Handy or a fellow commissioner. His attorney Marianne Dugan says Handy also sued the county in federal court also for violation of due process in 2012.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is expected to rule soon on a Trump Administration attempt to get rid of a climate lawsuit brought by 21 young people against the U.S. government. The Trump Administration requested a writ of mandamus, a rarely used legal maneuver that would null Eugene Federal Court Judge Ann Aiken’s ruling that the climate lawsuit should go to trial. Julia Olson, with Our Children’s Trust, represents the 21 youth plaintiffs.
Evacuation advisories for the upper McKenzie River area have been lifted and are no longer in effect. This includes Camp Melakwa and Foley Hot Springs. This collaborative decision between the Willamette National Forest, fire officials, and law enforcement officials is the result of recent cooler temperatures, increased humidity, and decreased fire activity in the area. This change in evacuation advisories does not impact forest area closures and road closures.
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".
