  • 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 .

    A couple of missed things

    Though they may have not gone unnoticed by me or any of the otherwise politically aware, we would be remiss if left out of our coverage here at RightMichigan.com.

    First there is the new Partial Birth Murder prohibition:

    Republican Gov. Rick Snyder signed the state ban into law Tuesday. Livingston pro-life groups are calling that a victory.

    The laws define partial birth abortion as an abortion in which a living fetus is partially delivered and terminated in some manner.

    Terminated.  By golly its just so much easier to say than killed painfully, murdered, slaughtered, etc.. At least there is another level of protection now available for those who have no defender otherwise.

    Thank you for signing that into Law Governor Snyder.

    The other item worth mentioning, (though not nearly as important)is the legislation that is expected to be signed by the governor as well that addresses "efficiency standards" for incandescent light bulbs though not directly.  It actually allows for the manufacture of incandescent bulbs in Michigan for the sale within Michigan.  This allows Michiganders to purchase the bulbs that would be otherwise banned by federal efficiency standards and the use of the 'commerce clause.'

    We should be reminded that Congressman Fred Upton played a hand in the over regulating of such miniscule things as our personal lighting. Regulation which led us to this point where we must as a state, assert our sovereign authority in some manner to meet the best interests of Michiganders.

    Happy Saturday folks!
