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.

Board favors landfill zoning

Opponents living near proposed site are upset

By Michael Hewlett

Commissioners in both Forsyth and Stokes counties may soon hear from hundreds of people who don't want to live near a proposed construction and demolition landfill.
Yours truly opines: For some reason, Fox 8 News and the radio station out of Stuart, VA are reporting that both the Forsyth & Stokes County planning boards have approved this request; that isn't so. Since I'm on the Stokes County Planning Board, I know for a FACT that we haven't heard this request.
