- An ambulance service that was the subject of a FOX 5 I-Team investigation is now on probation. The Georgia Department of Public Health placed Caring Hands EMS on two years probation as punishment for using unlicensed ambulances and an unlicensed EMT. It all stems from a whistleblower complaint sent to state and federal authorities, and the FOX 5 I-Team. "It didn't take me a couple of weeks to realize I was not in a very good place," one former employee told us. He worked there for 30 days.
- The mayor of Athens is betting her hometown team wins the CFP National Championship, and to the surprise of few part of that bet involves beer. FOX 5’s Randy Travis was in Athens where he arranged for the mayors of two college towns to stare each other down digitally. They couldn’t have done this 37 years ago, the last time Georgia was vying for a National Championship. People in Athens have waited that long for another chance to come around.
The ex. director for the Peachtree chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws spent 15 years as a deputy. Tom McCain says he refused to write misdemeanor marijuana cases because he thought the law was selectively enforced.

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".
