  • 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 .

    The Western Right - Another State Senate Candidate
    Looks to be a full slate for the Senate district being vacated by Senator Tonya Schuitmaker in 2014. Be sure to follow through to the MLive story as well.

    The Voice of One Crying Out in Suburbia - A Quick Economics Lesson
    Walmart is again used as the whipping boy for 'workers rights' demands by people who have nothing to do with the actual employees themselves. In this piece it is recognized that upward mobility is one of the paths that start from a lowly Walmart job.

    The Americanist - Thanksgiving humor
    A quick selection of holiday funnies.

    Spellchek - Is there a way around the retiree legacy cost debacle?
    Detroit is hardly alone in facing down legacy healthcare costs.  How did we 'wake-up' to the current predicament?

    The Shekel - Black Friday Dive In Union Lake
    Yeah, you read it right. DIVE. This is too much fun to pass up.  I have heard of the Polar Bear Club, but this takes it to a new level.

    I'll be hitting the blog list cull and add session again soon enough, and figured it would be a good time to highlight a couple of our Michigan based blogs.

    One that I am glad to see back up and regular is the Hall of Record.  A Natural Solution to Our energy Needs today talks about the use of Natural Gas for vehicles. I have commentary, but will share it when there is a field to place it in. (Hint)

    The Blog of Bodnar hits the national interest Republican presidential results of Iowa in Iowa Is Over Whats Next?  Take a breath.  Indeed.

    Jack McHugh at CapCon picks up the right to work story recently highlighted by Mitch Daniels of Indiana.  Strong Support for Right-to-Work Measures in the Michigan Legislature reminds us that there are folks in Lansing that have been actively pursuing this even over the fear of the nerd and senate majority leader.

    Could cities in Michigan be the next to "ban the box"?  The Wizard of Laws considers it in America's Newest Protected Class -- Felons! Keep the Crystal Ball warmed up wiz, and maybe some alka seltzer on the side. We'll need it.

    Conservative First has been gracious enough to pass a few gems over to this forum in the last year.  A few of them you may not have seen, but he highlights the best over at the Western Right.

    Update [2012-1-5 7:29:0 by JGillman]: I HAD to add this. God Bless you Rose. Wayne County Taxpayers - Recalling Recall and Senate Joint Resolution 5 I am with you.

    Blogroll Updates - Round III

    I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

    The Lions did a nice job on Christmas Eve, and the goodies that always seem so plentiful this time of year proved once again, that being full doesn't mean you have to stop eating.  Christmas day was spent recuperating.

    Getting out of the year thinner?  Not an option.

    Our newest thinning of the link love will start with the removal of Keepin' the Faith blog, which had as one of its last posts in 2009, a question: What is Conservatism?  Among the answers:

    "Conservatism is a group of core principles, or virtues, that are not solely political. Conservatism plays out in a broad political sense that takes into account the 'whole person.' We value the spiritual, marital, ecclesiastical, economic, social, and moral aspects of individuals live. We respect these, and many infinite more, as criteria necessary for an individual to determine his or her own happiness.

    We believe in human potential and the capacity for everyday heroes to do great things. Conservatives understand that it is not our job, nor is the government allowed, to determine the happiness or outcome of any life. We don't see groups, we don't divide you from your neighbor: our vision is a country where all those who can, do. "


    The next removal is the blog of Kevin Elsenheimer.  Kevin is a good conservative who's political end came as the result of a timely newspaper blow up of a non issue during his narrowly lost run for a district judgeship. His blog hanging in the nether, and no longer updated Kevin Elsenheimer's blog" is now gone.

    Not posting for over a year, Life with Mr. O is off.

    That's it for the this round.  

    Happy Monday!
