  • 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.

    Does Cherry support Dem move to drive Auto Show OUT of MI? Never mind, he's not taking questions

    Apparently John Cherry has better things to do.  As Dennis mentioned this morning, the Democrats likely 2010 gubernatorial candidate is making waves on Mackinac Island today by refusing to participate in a candidate forum with other candidates from both major Parties.  

    Pete Hoekstra will be there.

    Terri Lynn Land will be there.

    Tom George will be there.

    Mike Cox will be there the day after officially announcing his candidacy along with a pledge to cut taxes on Michigan residents by a full $2 BILLION!

    Heck, even radical pro-abortion candidate Alma Wheeler Smith will be there representing the Democrats.

    Cherry... not so much.

    Then again, if I were a part of a Democratic administration that was responsible for the largest tax hike in Michigan history, chronic budget "deficits" and thorough economic stagnation I'd probably duck a debate in front of the state's most prominent business leaders, too.

    Why give voters... ANY voters... any extra opportunity to examine the goods... so to speak?

    At first I thought we were looking at a case of abject political cowardice but I've since mellowed.  I hadn't considered the alternative.

    From the freep.com;

    Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm toured the Detroit auto show this morning before signing into law legislation that provides up to $335 million tax credits over five years to companies developing and manufacturing advanced batteries in Michigan.

    Really?  This is a novel idea, cutting taxes stimulates the economy!  Then why not cut taxes across the board; for everyone?
