Community must fight abuse, drugs

Former Carroll County Sheriff’s deputy J.T. Shaw shared his personal story of abuse as a child with nearly 200 people who turned out Friday night on the Carroll County Courthouse lawn for a child abuse prevention awareness program.

Sponsored by Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County, the program offered educational tables from area agencies, along with games and inflatables for the children.

Shaw shared his personal experience with physical and psychological abuse as a child growing up in Worthville.
