  • 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.

    Day 14 - And The Candidates Feel It

    But no worries.  The troops are getting armed with counter propaganda.

    The fact that the MiGOP leadership is in full blown damage control was evident from the 15 minute visit by a credential's committee member on Monday.

    To allow the argument that the post election rules change was not really a change, the video stood alone and unchallenged by our pens in the presentation.  Of course what happens behind the scenes, and in other commentary is another matter entirely.  Grand Traverse County was not the only place to get the visit, and the point was to get out the counter message to the story we have been telling here.

    And it is working for some.  

    Honest, politically active women who were present for the explanation presented here took it to heart that no change was made.  And the damage control measures are working to some extent.  

    One particular event which demonstrated this was the visit by CD1 Dan Benishek, who came to Traverse City to officially announce his reelection, and introduce himself to the new section of the district that was expanded by the reapportionment.  During a question and answer, Dr. Dan was asked by one woman: "How do you expect us to support you during reelection with all the backhanded dealings in the Michigan Republican leadership?" (paraphrased slightly) The question stumped the esteemed congressman, who went silent and staring for a period until rescued by two of those politically active advocates, who essentially said that Sharon explained it all so its not really that way.

    And then the Q&A was over.

    A job well done ladies.  More below ~
