Local residents could one day experience more smoke outside of fire season, if a push to relax regulations governing the use of prescribed fire in the forests is successful. Earlier this week, the Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project sent a letter to the state smoke management review committee, asking for changes that could open the door to more widespread use of controlled burning near Central Oregon communities.
A legal challenge to the construction of Kapka Sno-park was rejected by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Sept. 8. Shortly after the Forest Service approved construction of the sno-park in 2012, Bend-based Wild Wilderness filed suit, arguing that the Deschutes National Forest’s approval of the project violated the National Forest Management Act and the National Environmental Policy Act. Wild Wilderness represents nonmotorized users of the forest.
A Utah man was indicted on three counts of arson in connection with three fires that burned south of Bend late last month. Christopher Glen Wilson, 37, of Salt Lake City, is accused of starting the McKay Fire, which burned approximately 1,219 acres near La Pine, and two smaller fires along U.S. Highway 97 between Lava Butte and La Pine on Aug. 29. The two smaller fires were contained to less than 2 acres.
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".
