Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Stokes tax rate affects lottery allotment; County won’t receive a 35 percent portion

(By Leslie Bray Evans, The Stokes News) - Stokes County government officials received some disheartening news recently. A large portion of lottery money will not be headed this way after all. The county will get its regular lottery distribution, but an additional 35 percent that could’ve made quite a difference will not be allotted to Stokes.

The reason? Stokes County’s effective tax rate was not greater than 100 percent this past year.
