  • 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 .

    State Continues to Duck Central Question of Home Care Status

    Some information I am passing along from the Mackinac center.. ~ J.

    In Loar v. DHS, state's meager 12-page Supreme Court brief concedes the main issue by never addressing it, notes Mackinac Center attorney

    In a filing yesterday with the Michigan Supreme Court in the lawsuit Loar v. DHS, Mackinac Center attorney Patrick J. Wright lodged a response to a Department of Human Services brief that he later described as a "thin hodge-podge of technicalities." The filing by Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, called on the Supreme Court to immediately rule in favor of the home day care business owners the Mackinac Center represents in the case.

    The Center's lawsuit seeks to end the DHS' illegal diversion of so-called "union dues" from state subsidy checks that home-based day care providers receive for watching children from low-income families. The supposed "dues" are funneled to a government employee union that purports to represent more than 40,000 of Michigan's home-based day care providers, even though they are private business owners and independent contractors.

    I am a recent GM retiree and a Union member. I have had intimate experience with the UAW during my 30 years as a GM employee. I believe there was a time where the Union did serve a purpose. However, my experience has shown that the UAW has become what at one time they fought against, a bloated, corrupt, bureaucracy run on nepotism.
