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

Trust fund continuing volunteer's last wishes

(Winston-Salem Journal) - Those who knew Bill Johnson say that he connected people in a county that’s literally divided by a mountain.

Johnson was the first Stokes County manager. One of his final requests was to establish a trust fund to provide grants to nonprofit organizations in the county.

Since his death in 1999, the fund has allotted thousands to more than 20 nonprofit groups, several of which have received money for more than one project.
