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

Stokes County delays police department decision

(By Meghann Evans, The Stokes News) - The county commissioners decided Monday afternoon that they need more information before making a decision about the sheriff’s office providing law enforcement services in King.

It was the consensus of the board to move the item to the action agenda portion of the next regular Stokes County Board of Commissioners meeting, which will be held on March 26 at 6 p.m. in the county government center in Danbury.

King Mayor Jack Warren came before the board during the public comment period at the start of the meeting to request that the commissioners take action on the item that afternoon, but the commissioners were in favor of gathering more information and finding out what citizens had to say at the public comment session set for March 19 in King.
