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.

New spot for landfill entry

It will be on Forsyth County side

(Winston-Salem Journal) -
The City-County Utility Commission has hired an engineering company to design a new entrance to a site of a proposed construction and demolition landfill on U.S. 311 -- although legal issues concerning the site remain unresolved.

The commission plans to pay HDR Engineering of the Carolinas $115,580 to design an entry to the landfill that would access the site from U.S. 311 in Forsyth County.

The designs will allow the commission to ask for approval from the N.C. Department of Transportation for the intersection, and from Norfolk Southern Railway for crossing the railroad tracks at that location.
