He&rsquo;s begun by distributing buttons that read &ldquo;I take a stand against bullying!&rdquo;<br /> <p> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&ldquo;Most of the buttons of my first order have gone,&rdquo; he said. Some have gone as far as Tennessee.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Bullying can take multiple forms. It can be physical, but it can also be verbal. Carson notes that it&rsquo;s possible to destroy another person with your words.<br /> Faithful flexibility http://www.bedfordbulletin.com/content/faithful-flexibility <img src="http://www.bedfordbulletin.com/sites/www.bedfordbulletin.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/catholic_clerics_3_col.jpg" alt="Reverend Salvador Añonuevo is flanked by deacons Ray Roderique (left) and Eddie Craig." title="Reverend Salvador Añonuevo is flanked by deacons Ray Roderique (left) and Eddie Craig." align="left" hspace="6" width="113" height="85" /><p> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Holy Name of Mary and Resurrection are the only two Roman Catholic churches in Bedford County.&nbsp;</p> Community rallies around family http://www.bedfordbulletin.com/content/community-rallies-around-family <img src="http://www.bedfordbulletin.com/sites/www.bedfordbulletin.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/cancer_-_genevieve_b_3_col.jpg" alt="Genevieve playing in her hospital gown." title="Genevieve playing in her hospital gown." align="left" hspace="6" width="110" height="85" /><p> By Catherine Cary<br /> Communication student<br /> Virginia Tech<br /> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Genevieve Metcalf is no ordinary 3-year-old girl.

There won&rsquo;t be any charter members, however. That&rsquo;s because the Lodge was chartered in 1813, 200 years ago. It got its name because Bedford was named Liberty back then.<br /> <p> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;The Lodge was organized on July 6, 1813, and received its official charter on Dec. 14, 1813. It met in the home of Charles Mitchell which, Carl Wells, the Lodge&rsquo;s chaplain, believes was located at the corner of East Main Street and Otey Street.<br /> Adele’s Legacy continues work Moneta woman started in ‘03 http://www.bedfordbulletin.com/content/adele%E2%80%99s-legacy-continues-work-moneta-woman-started-%E2%80%9803 <img src="http://www.bedfordbulletin.com/sites/www.bedfordbulletin.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/mont_sweat_e_3_col_0.jpg" alt="Students in Cindy Meyer&#039;s class at Montvale Elementary display the sweaters, hats and scarves they picked out on Friday." title="Students in Cindy Meyer&#039;s class at Montvale Elementary display the sweaters, hats and scarves they picked out on Friday." align="left" hspace="6" width="128" height="85" /><p> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Carole Rogers of Bedford knits all year.<br /> <p> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;A lot.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Enough, in fact, to provide 75 sweaters and 125 hats and scarves to a program that gives one of each to students at a Bedford or Franklin County school each year.<br /> Life as a military brat http://www.bedfordbulletin.com/content/life-military-brat <img src="http://www.bedfordbulletin.com/sites/www.bedfordbulletin.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/military_brats_meeting_3_col.jpg" alt="Anita Beard talks with people at a New Beginnings luncheon at Olde Liberty Station.

James E. Foster, a career Army officer.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Military brats are what the children of career members of the armed forces call themselves. They often use the more specific designation of Army brat, Navy brat, and so forth, indicating their father&rsquo;s specific branch of service.<br />
