Pinwheels for Prevention mark the start of an important observance. They represent reports of child abuse and neglect. 2,860 shiny, spinning pinwheels adorn the front lawn at the Mansfield Area Y on Lexington Avenue. They were unveiled Wednesday morning during a ceremony to start April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker and County Commissioner Gary Utt presented proclamations, and Juvenile Court Judge Ron Spon thanked Children Services staff-members for working so well with his court. The agency's director, Patty Harrelson, says the pinwheels are an attention-grabbing way of involving the public. Pinwheels are also on display in front of the Mansfield Correctional Institution, representing how many of the inmates were either victims, or perpetrators of, child abuse. If you know of, or just suspect, a child is being abused or neglected, call Richland County Children Services' 24/7 hotline at 419-774-4100.
