The first of October marks the start of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The observance was kicked-off Tuesday with a noon hour ceremony at the gazebo in Central Park in downtown Mansfield. Domestic Violence Shelter Director Kathy Ezawa spoke of the importance of knowing how often domestic violence happens, and the signs it could happen to you or someone you know. A group of high school-age students from the STAR and I-MAC Academies at the Ocie Hill Neighborhood Center, called "Men of Strength", attended the ceremony. They're participating in a mentoring program created by the shelter to learn how to have healthy relationships with women. Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker and Richland County Commissioner Tim Wert presented proclamations.
