Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

The Stokes News 'Letters To The Editor'

Current events validate past behavior by Ron Carroll

For scanning purposes, John Turpin had to break this editorial in two parts, so to read the first part, click on the title, and to read the second part, click on his name.

Commissioners attacked volunteers by Jerry S. Mitchell

Isn't this the same guy who was a part of that "Save Stokes" group from a couple of years ago??? Is that group still in existence??? He pretty much accused Sandy McHugh of committing a felony in his editorial.

Speech made at commissioner's meeting by Fredricka Cecile

I'll admit, I don't have faith in the public health board to do their job. To be honest, I hope that the commissioners would remove a few more board members. When you have an unelected board like the Board of Health where the majority of its members believe they shouldn't be held accountable for their actions, then we have major problems. Just my opinion... :-)
