    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.

    Rep Miller Response To Obama Sequester Complaints

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today released the following statement in response to President Obama's call for replacing the pending automatic federal spending cuts, known as the "sequester," set to go into effect this year:

    "In speaking today about the pending spending cuts that will result if the sequester goes into effect on March 1st, President Obama left out three key facts:  One, that the sequester was included in the Budget Control Act at the suggestion of his Administration;  Two, that U.S. House Republicans have twice passed legislation to enact more responsible cuts and reforms to replace the sequester, H.R.5652 and H.R.6684, but the U.S. Senate refused to take action on either bill;  And three, that in 2013 the Congressional Budget Office projects that the federal government will take in more in tax receipts than ever before which makes it clear that the American people aren't taxed too little, the problem is that the government spends too much.

    "It is time for President Obama and Congressional Democrats to finally come to grips with the pressing need to reduce federal spending.  It is long past time for the U.S. Senate to pass legislation to eliminate the sequester, as the U.S. House has already done twice, if they believe more responsible cuts must be found.  And instead of pointing fingers of blame, President Obama needs to take responsibility for the sequester which his Administration proposed and show Congress and the American people the cuts to spending that he would prefer.  All President Obama did today was to attempt to frighten Americans to support his effort to again raise taxes to support higher government spending.  That is not a solution to our problems."
