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.

Nine Deer Killed in Randolph Co. Test Negative for Disease

Online petition balloons to 18,000 signatures

Nine deer shot and killed on a rehabilitation farm last month to be tested for a disease never found in the state have tested negative.

Wildlife officials said in a news release Tuesday none of the deer taken from Wayne Kinley's farm in Asheboro tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease.

Seven fallow deer and two white-tailed deer were taken from Kinley's farm on Hoover Hill Road on Sept. 20. Kinley was charged with operating an illegal captive deer farm and is awaiting a court appearance.
