However, kids with disabilities are still twice as likely to experience bullying, according to the National Bullying Prevention Center. October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Shriners Hospitals for Children@ is teaming up with award-winning actor, former patient and bullying survivor, RJ Mitte to combat bullying. According to the National Bullying Prevention Center, bullying can cause depression, anxiety and Other health problems, as well as poor academic performance. As part of the national #CutTheBull campaign, free resources for patients and the public are available at cutthebull. org. Public service announcements, a social media challenge, tip cards and an anti-bullying ambassador tool kit can help kids and adults #SeeTheAbility in all people. "Growing up, my disability made me a target for bullies," said Mitte, who has cerebral palsy. "I was harassed, knocked down and even had my hand broken. Now, I have an opportunity to give a voice to people with disabilities and promote acceptance." Like Mitte, many Shriners Hospitals patients have scars or physical differences that put them at greater risk for being bullied. As part of their ongoing care plans, staff at Shriners Hospitals across the nation offer various empowerment programs to help patients succeed socially and emotionally. Shriners Hospitals for Children provides specialty pediatric care for children with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate, regardless of the families' ability to pay. Shriners Hospitals also offers psychological support, rehabilitation, life skills training and community outreach programs that help children with physical differences feel confident. "Our goal is to help our patients succeed and reach beyond the traditional limits of their conditions," said Gary Bergenske, chairman of the Board of Directors at Shriners Hospitals for Children. "We do this at Shriners Hospitals every day. This campaign gives us a chance to reach outside our hospitals to help all people see beyond physical appearances to the ability that lies within each child."

Barn on Ri" During our search for a barn on River Ridge Road in the Pipestem District, Joyce and I met Walter Taylor while he was driving his all terrain vehicle to the mailbox. We stopped to ask if he knew the location of the barn we were looking for. We told him about our "project" and he suggested we stop by his place on the way back and have a look at the barn he and his wife, Oneida (Cook), owned. They welcomed us at the house and showed us the view from the porch. You could see Peter's Mountain with Pulaski County in Virginia just behind the mountain. What a fantastic view! The house was built high on a hill above an area called Crumps Bottom. This provided another scenic view of the New River and the one of the longest level pieces of land in the county, extending about six miles along the river. We were th~~ ;-~;ormed the barn was near t}~ ~ loot of the hill, about half way to the river. We gathered in the ATV and took off down the hill, me with one hand on the side of the ATV and one on the camera. Built in the first quarter of the twentieth century, the barn was moved from another location on the farm. Mr. Taylor told us the barn was built of oak with locust posts around the foundation. He said at one time there were many small farms on the mountain because where you would find a spring you would find a house and barn. The Taylor's showed us a small log building that was used as a top house over a food cellar. Other names for a place where farmers stored food in the winter were, root cellars or dugouts. They keep food from freezing during the winter and keep food cool during the summer months to prevent spoilage. A variety of vegetables are placed in the root cellar in the autumn, after harvesting. In this case the cellar was established and a small structure built on top to keep rain and snow from seeping in and to keep animals from falling into the cellar. He said he had heard that back when it was first built it was a honeymoon cottage for a young couple who had married at the farm.
