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.

Firefighter Charity Follow-Up

(WGHP-TV) - The first time FOX 8 'On Your Side' visited the Volunteer Fire Fighters Charitable Organization, they didn't get a warm reception. So they tried again on Tuesday.

The organization had been asking local businesses to give money since December, but no one seems to know where the money is going. Melissa Painter stood live outside the office in another effort to find out.

Before giving money to any organization, there are a couple of questions you need to ask first:

- How will my money be used?
- What percentage of my money goes toward that purpose?

If they demand immediate payment or they want to pick up a check the next day, do some digging first.
