  • 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

    Got kicks? Every Detroit student who shows up on the cash-crucial Student Count Day will be able to answer "yes" thanks to a donation from Bob's Classic Kicks in midtown.

    BCK, 4717 Woodward, made an arrangement with the school district to give away a free pair of black leather Nikes to every student who comes to class on Oct. 3, the day when students are counted and their numbers used as the basis for per-pupil funding from the state and federal government.

    The more bodies in class, the more money schools have all year.


    Perhaps, rewards for perfect attendance?  Oh hell no: Count Day Caaaaaash, fo shizzle.  Nice 'gaming the system' values you got there, Bob's Classic Kicks.  What's next?  Teaching the rest of the secrets to success for Detroit is written on the back of EBT cards?

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Send The Bill To Target

    So it goes... yesterday it's Penske, today it's Target.

    via The Detroit News

    The Target Fireworks will go off as planned this month, but the cash-strapped city will get help from county and state authorities to help keep downtown secure, Mayor Dave Bing said Wednesday.

    Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties and the Michigan State Police have committed to helping with public safety and offsetting security costs estimated at about $700,000, Bing said in a statement. This year's fireworks are set for June 25.

    "After assessing the considerable public safety costs, we have reached out to and received the support of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb sheriff's offices and the Michigan State Police to help ensure that this year's fireworks display would go on as scheduled," Bing said.

    Bing added the city will need help with other big downtown events.

    Rest here

    Is there anything that Bing and the city can do without using other peoples money?  Amazing.  Target decides it wants to get some advertising by propping up an event in a war zone, and the public gets stuck with paying for their zookeeper.

    It's so comforting to know that our money swirls into the toilet in Lansing that's known as the State Treasury.

    Roger, Do Like Warren Buffett Should: Shut Up and Write A Check

    via The Detroit News

    Mayor Dave Bing and Gov. Rick Snyder met today in Bing's office with LaHood; businessman Roger Penske, chairman of the M-1 project; and several members of the Michigan's congressional delegation to discuss the issues.
    Penske said he was "very excited" about LaHood's comments that he is in favor of the project. "We have to be sure we have all the technical information available to us," he said. "There's a concern, potentially, about who's going to run this."

    Penske said it was clear the federal government wants a regional transportation authority [think bridge] to help with the project.

    Investors with the M-1 group submitted their plans to federal officials in April. Group officials said they had raised most of the $137 million needed to build the line and pledged to pay 80 percent of the annual cost of operating it through 2025.

    The rail line would extend 3.3 miles from downtown, north to the New Center Area.

    Can y'all get over the size of the stones on those like Roger in the Billionaire Club walking around with their hand out for taxpayer money?

    All of them in Detroit.  Penske, Gilbert, Ilitch, and the Ford's.  They all talk Free Market, but sure as hell don't mind Socialism when it comes to feeding their Crony Capitalism and Corporate Welfare wallets.

    Small Steps on a Narrow Path

    Tags: Detroit, Dave Bing (all tags)

    It may have been a baby step but it was an important one.

    Mayor Dave Bing announced this morning the firing of two executives within Detroit's fire department. The firings were at least in part the result of systemic department resistance to a police investigation into the coverup of a wallet's theft during a smoke alarm call.

    All crimes committed by city worker's are supposed to be reported to internal affairs within the Police Department. The Fire Department failed to do so and Bing and the Police Department only became aware of the theft after a reporter from Fox2 in Detroit contacted them. Oops.

    Detroit has inadvertently created a fire dilemma for its citizens--what do they do first? Do they bury their valuables in the yard before or after they make that fateful call?

    Come on Dave Bing!

    This is the opportunity that the citizens of Detroit have needed for decades. Now is the time to fire municipal employees that put themselves ahead of the citizens that they are charged with serving.

    Some Detroit Leaders Providing Hope

    Sadly, the word "Detroit" is synonymous with "dysfunction" thanks to the scandals of Monica Conyers and former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and the ineptitude of the City Council. But let's not let those dark clouds obscure several bright lights emerging from the ranks of Detroit's political leaders.

    Detroit Public Schools Emergency Financial Manager Robert Bobb is the brightest of those lights. Since being appointed in March, Mr. Bobb has tackled the seemingly hopeless disaster that is the Detroit Public School System with inspiring vigor.

    In just a few months, Bobb has slashed a $430 million deficit nearly in half by eliminating bloated staffing and uncovering fraud. Bobb has cut 181 positions out of the 231 person curriculum department, terminated half of the district's assistant superintendents, and dumped eleven of the 21 "executive cabinet" members.

    Bob hasn't just juggled numbers and laid off unnecessary personnel - he's aggressively tackled fraud and corruption. In the past two weeks, Bobb uncovered over 250 non-existent "ghost workers" on the payroll and suspended seven more employees accused of theft and embezzlement after investigations were initiated under his watch.

    And Mr. Bobb isn't finished yet. He plans on privatizing the district's transportation services, is considering additional privatization, and will close 29 schools this fall.

    Cold hearted? Only if one believes that a school district's primary job is to employ adults and coddle unions instead of putting resources into educating children. The kids and taxpayers of Detroit should hail Bobb as a hero.

    And Mayor Bing should take notice. The Mayor started out on the right foot by rejecting the perk of the Manoogian Mansion, opting to rent out the building for the benefit of taxpayers. Bing then suggested that the City's grossly inefficient public lighting department be outsourced, only to back away when confronted by union intimidation. Let's hope the Mayor regains his nerve.
