  • 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.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Senator "Cyberstalker?"

    I believe constituents and citizens need to be aware of any inappropriate conduct of their elected officials.  My intent is not to engage in some silly tit-for-tat feud however, Michigan citizens have a right to expect that their Senators conduct themselves in a manner befitting their office.

    Rick Jones is at it again. Somebody needs to put his computer in a lock box
    Unbelievably, I received this Facebook e-mail message from the Senator
    Evidently Rick Jones has never heard of a "Screenshot. A larger version is HERE

    LIAR! MI Senator to Tea Party Organizer

    I would like to share with you some insight in to the methodology of the passage of SB 693... and the fall out

    Evidently some of Sen. Rick Jones (24th District) constituents were not happy with his yes vote or his comment on the Senate floor that I shared with you in the last Newsletter and post HERE "He had to "plug his nose and vote for the bill"
    How do I know that? Because I received an angry e-mail from Senator Jones. His e-mail is interesting in that it provides a window into some of the dealing going on under the Capitol Dome

    Senator Jones e-mail is HERE

    So let's address his assertions, shall we?

    First of all "You are spreading lies.  You do not understand why we had to do what we did."

    Better Managers?

    By JGillman, Section News

    Irony! The first time in 41 years a bill could be introduced to correct a critical problem with P.A. 312, and instead the bill extends the reach of the monster legislation.  SB Passed the house yesterday, and is on its way to the governor's desk.

    Representative Rick Jones (R-Grand Ledge) spoke in support of the bill and in his actual floor speech said:

    "If cities are losing these awards they need to hire better city managers."

    I have written on PA312 before.

    Might there be a solution?  Given that the law states unfunded mandates to municipalities are NOT supposed to happen, (A current lawsuit by Charlevoix commissioners is now ongoing) This may well set up the state for a bigger fall than it has been headed for already.  

    Better Managers? or perhaps better legislators..

    Rick Jones is running against Randy Brink in the 24TH DISTRICT STATE SENATE primary.

    I hope the folks in the 24th can say "see ya later Rick." FAIL.
