  • 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 .

    Because we must know.

    Does THIS:
    Moroun, 84, and Stamper, 62, were sent to jail Thursday as punishment for their company being found in contempt of court. Judge Prentis Edwards said Detroit International Bridge Co. repeatedly failed to follow his orders to work with the state of Michigan and get the Gateway Project done.

    have anything to do with THIS?
    The son of a Detroit judge who is set to impose contempt of court penalties against Ambassador Bridge owner Matty Moroun has been appointed to the bench by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder.

    Somebody has some splainin to do.

    It likely won't be Mr Moroun.

    For the sake of integrity in the bench, perhaps in the executive branch in Lansing, I want to see a really good reason.  I am really seriously shaken by this if it is true.

    I know one fan of this site whom I hope would take a look at this.  I pray there is no quid pro quo, but for the life of me I cannot get over what would have to be the crappiest coincidence in Michigan political history.

    Whats burning?

    Well.. in April it was Flint.

    Graves says 10 of the 12 fires are being investigated as possible arson.

    He says a total of 107 fires have been reported in April, which he says is a "gigantic" increase from the 37 reported in the same time period last year.

    And coincidentally, there was a simultaneous downturn in firefighter employment, which made the situation even more critical..

    Flint recently laid off 23 of 88 firefighters and 46 of 150 police officers to help close a budget deficit. The cuts have been accompanied by a wave of suspected arsons, many in abandoned homes.

    Is it me or does there always seem to be a lot of coincidence surrounding public employee issues?

    But never fear, the federal government has a handle on the situation.  The cavalry has arrived.

    Business has been OK, but technical support, dealing with holiday based events, and even now spending more time trying to analyze ways to get Michigan out of this mess sure can lead to a bad case of A.D.D.  "Multitasking is not all its cracked up to be.

    Apologies for the failure to get my articles up in a timely manner.

    But there is a point of good news I received this morning I thought I would share.  One of the products I sold to a friend apparently saved a life, and half of a home recently.  That product, A wireless baby monitor, was checked up on, and his relative (the one he bought as a gift for)saw smoke, and was able to get children out. With half the home burned out but everyone safe, they made it a point to call and say thanks.

    I would attribute such "coincidences" to a higher power personally, but certainly share in the happiness with the safety of his extended family.
