  • 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

    "You've heard of the bridge to nowhere?  Welcome to the jail for no one."

    Told ya.  You're getting warmer, Ross.  However, that jail for no one will be gobbled up by Dan Gilbert for pennies on the dollar.

    And, you've got a whole gaggle of MI-GOP bootlickers who watched Rakolta line his pockets, main one being, the State AG.  Next question would reasonably be, what did the wife of former State AG (Commissioner Laura Cox) know, and when did she know it?

    Ross, Show More Concern With Gov. Snyder

    I really appreciate WXYZ's Ross Jones.  He's perhaps one of the finest investigative reporters in SE Michigan.

    Yes, that Inkster property.  So, naturally Gov. Snyder, brings Ron Boji into the Lansing fold in the Big Money State slush fund.  Note: "acting as the fiduciary agent for the 21st Century Jobs Fund."  RM readers can't say they weren't aware.  Associations matter.  

    Then, in Wayne County, there is also John Rakolta, who sits on the Board of the quasi-governmental "Development" entity capable of influencing bids on Ficano projects that John's company Walbridge Aldinger, just happens to be constructing the Jail to Nowhere, is also now pocketing the millions in "cost overruns".  Mighty convenient coincidence for Dan Gilbert, to make suggestion of taking that boondoggle jail property off the county's hands, assumedly, for pennies on the dollar, isn't it?

    If only a corporate mouthpiece hadn't clued Johnny in with saying something to the effect, "are you out of your flipping mind while sitting on the WCBDC Board?" when that downtown crony "loan" to freshly out jail felony convict Kwame was made.
