  • 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 .

    Local Democrats' hostility to business bearing bitter fruit

    What I'm about to tell you is so surprising you're not going to want to believe it.  In fact, here, why don't we sit down.

    I know you're a proud Michigander.  I am too.  I've been here my whole life and when I've had opportunities to leave, to take a job in the political Mecca of modern society, Washington, D.C., I've always turned those offers and opportunities down.  This is home and we love it.

    Turns out, though, and don't shoot the messenger, but not everyone feels the way you and I do about the Great Lakes State and the city with which we're synonymous.  The Ivory Tower reports this morning on the release of an October survey highlighting and lowlighting cities from across the country and their appeal to Americans looking for a new life in a new town.  

    No surprise that Denver is ranked the top city in America (by this measure) with a full 43 percent of respondents indicating they'd like to live there.  Look at their football team... I'm surprised the number is that low (Super Bowl bound next year, by the way).  

    Folks were pretty clear about two things.  They liked cities out west and down south, but the Midwest and Michigan in particular?  Not so much.  Our own Detroit, Michigan was the lowest rated city in the survey with only 8 percent of the participants labeling it a city in which they'd like to live.  On the flipside, a survey-high 90 percent of participants labeled it a city where they would definitely NOT like to live.
