  • 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.

    Remember folks, Rick Snyder wants youth enslaved to this Federal dumbing-down agenda.

    "I think the Common Core is a really important opportunity, and I think it's a good thing," Snyder said Monday in Detroit, where he was joined by U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. "Unfortunately, it's been too much about politics. Too many people in our country ... are looking to fight someone for the sake of fighting."

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it .

    Just something to mull over in the days leading up to the upcoming approval of Medicaid Expansion in the Michigan Senate later this month.

    With the guv being the stalwart number cruncher he is, what better way is there to help contain patient costs after the federal government begins to scale back its "contribution", then by containing the number of patients your new entitlement will cover?

    Think Sections 3403 and 10320 in the PPACA.

    Of course, it does play hell with the voting rolls. But they have already lived a long and good life anyway.

    Gotta look at the larger picture and keep those overall costs down!

    It's Not a Penalty: It's a Tax

    via The Detroit News

    DTE Energy is moving forward with a plan to allow customers to opt out of using high-tech "smart meters" to monitor energy consumption in their homes. But the program could cost residents as much as an additional $180 a year.

    But some customers have balked at the idea of using smart meters out of a fear of possible health and privacy issues. This week, DTE officials unveiled their opt-out program, which would include a one-time $87 installation charge for a new digital meter without radio transmission capability, and a $15 per month fee for its use.

    DTE's proposal will require approval from the Michigan Public Service Commission - a decision the utility hopes could arrive as soon as this fall.

    Jeez, thanks for sitting on HB 5411, Speaker Bolger!  I guess this now allows one way for DTE to sidestep calling a rate hike.  More to consider below.
