  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    ScoopHost.com is currently running Scoop version Undeterminable from .

    In one of the most active off presidential election cycles in memory, there are candidates who might never have considered running for office.  From incumbents facing challengers from their own party, to seats that are wide open, 2010 promises to be a highlight of this century both nationally and in our very own state races.

    But chicken counting is not allowed this year.

    Locally, a seat being vacated by outgoing Judge John Foresman who is retiring, leaves the door open for the five candidates who by all measures and observations have been campaigning heavily in the three county district being served.  It only takes a small swing in a race like this to take someone who might seem to be the top contender and drop them to first-to-lose status or worse.  Talking with several of the candidates, (one of them Kevin Elsenheimer) I have found that each realizes even the smallest of their efforts can make the greatest difference.

    Nothing can be left to chance.  No one should be taken for granted.  And if you think you have it in the bag, think again.
