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.

Advocate to promote Dan River

DANBURY (By Lisa O'Donnell, Winston-Salem Journal) - Many paddlers would agree that the prettiest sections of the 200-mile-long Dan River are in Stokes County.

Those sections are also among the most difficult to access.

Dale Swanson hopes to change that.

Swanson was recently named the Stokes Program Coordinator for the Dan River Basin Association, a nonprofit organization based in Eden that has become a strong advocate for promoting and protecting the river. Some of the association's activities include organizing outings on the river, working with local governments and building trails.

The new office is in the same building as the Stokes County Arts Council in Danbury.
