GENTRY -- Pinwheels turning in the breeze are a reminder of the sad fact that there are many, many child abuse cases each year. In 2018 alone, 353 confirmed cases were reported and worked in Benton County.
This is a slight decrease from last 2017, which saw 380 confirmed cases, and 2016, which saw 439 confirmed cases, but the total number of cases continues to climb.
Fifth-grade students from Gentry Intermediate School assisted Gentry police officers in placing the 353 pinwheels in the police station lawn on Friday afternoon.
