    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.

    Kent County Republican Committee - February 2009 Executive Meeting

    On Thursday, February 26, the Kent County Republican Committee (KCRC) Executive Committee Meeting was held.

    County Chair Joanne Voorhees called the meeting to order at 6:01 PM.  The first order of business, approving the January meeting's minutes, was dispatched quickly and with the committee's usual efficiency.  Chairwoman Voorhees recognized all of the elected officials in attendance and then gave the floor to Terri Lynn Land, the current Secretary of State and 2010 gubernatorial candidate.

    Secretary Land stated that she is a fiscal conservative, and will run on a platform of fiscal responsibility and limited, more responsive government.  She pointed out that she has been practicing these principles in her current position by reducing her department's staff only through attrition and consolidating services statewide (closing unnecessary offices in the process).  Her stated goal is to have every single SOS branch office completely modernized by the end of her current term.  While there is no one "silver bullet" that will solve Michigan's economic problems, Land said that she will start by recommending the termination of unnecessary, unneeded programs (specifically not touching good programs that work) instead of across-the-board cuts that do not discriminate between useful and useless government expenditures.

    As I've mentioned one or two times on this site, I'm pretty deeply involved with the Kent County Republican Committee (KCRC).  This includes having reported on the November-December meetings and convention.  There are three events happening at KCRC-HQ in pretty quick sequence, just in case anyone might be interested.
