  • 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.

    Let's remember the names  Byron Delong and Tom Harkleroad.  They are the two members of both CEI and the County Planning Commission earlier in the story.  By May, 2008 only Delong was still a member of both.  Delong was also the man who, in March of 2008, made it clear during a Planning Commission meeting that their should be a public forum to discuss the addition of biomass to the special use permit before the commission issues an amended permit.  That meeting was also attended by Tom Karas, (Michigan Energy Alternatives)  and Jim Dulzo, (Michigan Land Institute) environmentalist buddies from the other side of the state.   Now, let me be clear, the environmental movement had representatives from three groups.  One serving on the board, and the other two pushing for a public forum.  The one on the board suggested the forum be held in May.

    It was around this time I was alarmed to read a report by Judy Pasternak of the Los Angeles Times titled, "Global warming has a new battleground: coal plants," in the April 14th issue of the paper.  I will link to it with one proviso, it no longer includes the best part of the report.  Here is the titled story, with the first nine paragraphs removed.
     The first nine paragraphs appeared in the report the day I printed it out, 4/14/08.  Here is some of what they said:

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Our Government: The New No. 1 Crime Family

    Political Agenda with Danian Michael

    For research, I was watching the movie Casino (a movie by the way that is based on actual events) when I came upon a very popular practice in organized crime. For whatever reason, a small business owner owes money to the mob; perhaps, it is due to a gambling debt or a personal loan. Now in the world of organized crime, they don't send you a thirty day notice, they send a collector. If your debt is due at 11:50 and you still have not paid it, you can expect a knock on your door at 11:51. The Mob runs a pretty effective collection agency, if you know what I mean.

    In some instances; however, if the person owing the debt is a business owner, the Mob seizes control of the business (unofficially) and runs through its resources like an aggressive parasite. They would take out big loans against the business, use it to launder money, and basically suck it dry until all that's left is the human devastation of the owner and his family. Bankruptcy for the owner is almost always the conclusion of this unholy partnership.

    Now, does any of this ring a bell or seem oddly familiar? If it does not, I have to conclude that you were either born last night or you have an unhealthy love affair with president Obama. Either way, you are not privy to current events.

    Dems' CAFE standards, smoking ban setting up massive Michigan layoffs

    It is trendy to be "green."  I get it.  They've been drilling that into our collective skull since I was in second grade (1985 seems like a looooong time ago) and the Grand Rapids Public Schools started sending every student home with over-sized neon green "tree" bumper stickers to foist on their parents. Hugging trees is supposed to be cool.  

    And we all love trees.  I have four or five of them in my back yard and another in the front.  They produce oxygen, shade, they smell nice, I can burn them to stay warm if my heat ever gets shut off... errr...

    In the 75 centuries or 869 quadrillion years this planet has been circling the sun (depending on your source, of course) Earth has managed to adapt and survive just about everything.  Colossal, global floods.  Meteor showers.  Ice ages.  Quasi-nuclear winters.   Human beings.  

    Leave it to automobiles to signal the end of all that is, was or ever could have been.  Thank goodness we've got these brave environmentalist crusaders willing to fight pollution whatever the cost.  And thank goodness there are so many of them here in Michigan to enable the Granholm-Cherry administration as they join with President Obama in foisting these massive new CAFE standards on an automobile industry on the verge of permanent financial ruin. Without them we'd have negligibly dirtier air and 50,000 auto workers wouldn't be mapping the best route from their soon-to-be-foreclosed homes to the nearest unemployment line.  And who would want that?

    I mean, except for the Michigan Left.  Because according to the Detroit News, that's precisely how many Big 3 jobs are expected to be killed by the Democrats new environmental red (or should it be green) tape.

    Nearly 50,000 jobs could be lost in the auto sector as a result of President Barack Obama's decision to approve fuel efficiency requirements for the nation's cars and trucks, according to government documents and a former presidential adviser.

    At the same time, the increased fuel rules could cause full-size truck sales to fall significantly without government help, a Wall Street analyst said.

    Those trucks, by the way, have long been the last remaining cash cow for the Big 3.  Buh-bye marketability.  Hello pink slips.  

    All of this thanks to our elected officials?

    Obama's Emission Policy Kills 800 more Americans a Year

    Maybe my invitation to one of the many social gatherings and cocktail parties hosted by President Obama and the First Lady has been lost in the mail? I mean I have been paying for the $100 single servings of the mighty delicious, oh so tender and savory "wagwu steaks" that Barry O delightfully serves to his VIP, red-carpet-welcomed guests. While this week's episode of The Fabulous Life on VH-1 did not feature Barack's cushy playboy lifestyle, I am holding out for the episode that will attribute him as this year's concluding rock star. I mean, the man deserves the celebrity lifestyle he was given.

    His giving nature is what inspires me to be all that I can be. Even today Barry O put Mother Teresa to shame when he signed the credit card bill into law. In case you missed the coverage, his halo radiantly floated above his head, while the delightful harps played in the background as the rays from heaven shined down to gracefully silhouette his toned features as he delicately signed each letter of his name with a new pen. His generosity outpoured as he carefully designated each pen to a specific individual who aided in the writing of the credit card bill so they would have a token to cherish and pass down to generations.

    But the blessings we have received from Barry are much more than pens to treasure. We Americans have received the charming gift of debt and now it seems with new emission standards we will also receive the gift of death, well at least 800 more Americans a year to be specific.

    Welcome to Bizarro Michigan

    Looks like we're in for a week of the unusual!  Probably shouldn't come as a surprise, following a weekend that saw the Tigers post back-to-back road shutouts of the Cleveland Indians for the first time since 1908, but this morning's headlines still manage to cover a few subjects that in any other day and age would be real head-scratchers.  Welcome to Bizarro Michigan.

    Who'd have ever thunk, for instance, that in the middle of May, well after the emergence of spring and the not-uncommon 70 degree day, with the planet dying and temperatures soaring while the sun turns the surface into a George Foreman grill, melts ice caps and roasts polar bears in their fur, Michigan's LOWER peninsula would suddenly find itself facing a FREEZE warning that threatens to devastate crops.  The Associated Press sounds the alarm!

    Summer may be just six weeks away, but the northern half of Michigan's Lower Peninsula faces the threat of a hard freeze that could kill crops and early-season plants.

    The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning from midnight to 8 a.m. Monday for northwest Lower Michigan and from 2-8 a.m. for northeast Lower Michigan and the Thumb. Frost and subfreezing temperatures are expected in the region lying north of Interstate 96.

    Brrrr.  Michigan hasn't gotten that cold a reception since the auto execs asked Congress for federal stimulus funding.  (*RIMSHOT* C'mon... that was awesome, wasn't it?)

    Oh, and the bailout cash that they finally did convince the Democrats to funnel into the Motor City?  Too little too late.

    Czech President Vaclav Claus maybe the only voice of sanity left in an ever increasing collectivist wold.  In Davos, Switzerland, President Claus called global warming creator Algore out.  From Breitbart.com:

    "I don't think that there is any global warming," said the 67-year-old liberal, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the European Union. "I don't see the statistical data for that."
