A resolution to a lawsuit concerning Oxnard's utility rates could come in March as the trial winds down. Attorneys for the city and the proponent of a rate repeal are finalizing legal briefs for Ventura County Superior Court Judge Rocky Baio to consider. Closing arguments are anticipated in late February. The city is challenging the legality of Measure M, an initiative written by Oxnard resident Aaron Starr to repeal rate increases passed by City Council in 2016.
A convoy of 50 Oxnard police officers descended on a coastal homeless encampment Wednesday to tell the inhabitants to leave, perhaps for the last time. Dozens of people who have been living there packed their things in shopping carts and walked off the Perkins Road property. Gloria Marshall drove away in her mobile home before the police got out of their vehicles. "I don't know where I'm gonna go, but I'm going," she said.
Nearly 40 maps carving Ventura County's largest city into separate voting districts will be discussed Wednesday. At a special meeting at 6 p.m., the City Council will consider the different maps created by the public and a demographer. It's possible one of them could dictate how Oxnard voters will select their council members in elections to come. Wednesday will be the first meeting on district elections with draft maps available to be viewed.
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".
