There were no punches, literal or figurative. But there was a boxing ring, along with scheduled rounds, a signifying bell and an announcer inquiring whether the audience was indeed ready. For the most part, they were. About 100 watchers, some with micheladas in one hand and trip-tip sandwiches in the other, listened and cheered Thursday as candidates and incumbents in the Oxnard recall election made their political pitches.
A power company wants to suspend its application to build a gas-fired plant near Santa Paula, likely putting the controversial project on hold for the time being. In 2015 Calpine Corp. submitted its proposal to build an electrical generating power plant on Mission Rock Road.

It was like drinking from a fire hose. The Oxnard community had so much to say and the recruiter hired by the city to find a city manager had so much to absorb. Oxnard Fire Department: First interns learn the inner workings of agencyGood listener, experienced with finances, well-educated, local and honest.

Tin of tiny Altoids slipped from my hands while I was driving and the mints flew all over the place. Started wondering what would happen if a cop pulled me over. Would the officer think they were drugs? Little curiously strong drugs?
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".
