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.

Stokes board to decide on emergency dispatch grant

Part of a state project, it speeds up response of emergency personnel

DANBURY (Winston-Salem Journal) -
Stokes County has been offered an emergency-medical-dispatch grant that could cut about 30 seconds off its emergency-medical-dispatch time, which is now two minutes, officials said.

The state has issued about $72,000 to Stokes as part of an Emergency Medical Dispatch Enhancement Project, if the county agrees to a 20 percent match of the grant.
