    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.

    Complete Waste of Federal Confiscated Tax Dollars

    Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood met with Gov. Rick Snyder and the state Senate Republican leader Tuesday on the long-stalled regional transit authority.

    LaHood praised the meeting with Sen. Majority Leader Randy Richardville and said progress was being made. He said he planned to meet with the state House Speaker Jase Bolger early next month.

    "I believe within the next month or so we will be able to make some announcements and we're making a lot of progress and I things are moving in the right direction," LaHood said.

    In February 2010, the Transportation Department awarded $25 million for Detroit light rail as part of a 9.3-mile, $500 million project that was to travel up Woodward to Eight Mile.

    Rest here

    Speaker Bolger, here's a chance to redeem yourself with stopping this wasteful progressive agenda by a No Go in the House on Gov JenniRick Snydholms' utopian Regional Transit Authority.

    Though, good for graft.

    The U.S. Transportation Department today will launch a 3,000-vehicle test of "smart car" technology in Ann Arbor.

    U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and National Highway Traffic Safety Administrator David Strickland will join automakers to begin the yearlong test, the largest to date.

    Vehicle-to-vehicle technologies have the potential to significantly reduce crash fatalities and injuries and could one day help motorists avoid crashes altogether, Strickland said.

    This first-of-its-kind effort will test a Wi-Fi-like technology by which vehicles and highways can "talk" to each other and perhaps reduce crashes and improve traffic congestion. Cars, for example, could alert each other that a driver was about to miss a stop sign or pull onto a busy street. Or that a vehicle has entered a driver's blind spot.

    The test will include vehicle-to-vehicle crash avoidance technologies such as forward-collision warnings, "do not pass" alerts and warnings that a vehicle ahead has stopped suddenly. It also will involve some vehicle-to-roadway testing.

    Rest here

    Truly amazing what amount of privacy Americans willingly hand over to corporations in partnership with government, and all is sold to the gullible thralls under the guise of safety.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    BREAKING - Dazzo Resigns

    Don't let the door hit you on the way out Olga.

    Buh-bye now.

    This state has had its share of pitiful directors and leftover meat puppets from prior administrations.  Though selected by the incoming Snyder administration, Dazzo was clearly designed to fit in with them.  I had written before:

    "In January of 2011, Maura Corrigan, former Michigan Supreme Court Justice, and the newly installed DHS director, rightly declared the child care workers were NOT employees of the state, ending their nightmare, but the Director of the Department of Community Health Olga Dazzo had no such plans.  This required further legislative action to clarify the status of the contractors."
    And the legislation came, then so did the lawsuit holding up an end to the THEFT that COULD have been avoided if Dazzo had been paying attention, or if she had actually given a rats @$$.

    Of course Snyder could have done more as well, but at least Maura had the sense of what is proper, and didn't need the prod that would never be forthcoming from our falling over left get-along RINO chief executive.  Now Olga is leaving:

    "LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today accepted the resignation of Department of Community Health Director Olga Dazzo, who has decided to return to the private sector. The governor named former Director James K. Haveman, Jr. to lead the agency. Dazzo was appointed by Snyder in December 2010.   "
    Hast la Pasta. Ciao. Say "Yanara"  ..

    I doubt we've seen the last of her though.  It wouldn't surprise me if in her future "private sector" endeavors, she doesn't wind up financially interested in some health care exchange contracts.

    Nah..  THAT never happens.
