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.

Grade school in Stokes gets SMART

By Lisa R. Boone

An elementary school in Stokes County is providing its students with an interactive tool in hopes that it will help them become life-long learners and critical thinkers.

Francisco Elementary School has installed SMART Boards, whiteboards with touch-sensitive displays that connect to computers and digital projectors, in each of its classrooms.

Lloyd and Rachel Collins, former educators in Stokes County - a principal and teacher - left money to the school, which was used to buy most of the boards.

The school will have a dedication ceremony for the boards at 1:30 p.m. today.

This is where I went to elementary school...
