Remember the children




Ethan Howard of Oneonta, though not a victim himself, raises a pinwheel to commemorate the 140 children who were known victims of child abuse in Blount County in 2008. Jill Stansell, of the Blount County Children's Center, looks on in the background. Each pinwheel planted on the lawn at the Blount County Community Services Building represents a Blount County child abuse case. The occasion is April Child Abuse Prevention month. -  Ron Gholson
