Children enjoyed Snowball the Clown and liked petting and Hewing the horses, burro, llama and sheep. by Patti Babcock Legals Abuse and battering take many forms. People can be abused and accept it thinking "that's just how life is." NO! A pretty young woman was talking to the clerk in a Pahrump mini-mart. The clerk expressed surprise that the woman had returned to a battering hus- band. The woman said, "Well, what are you gonna do? They (men) think all women are good for is to beat 'em and breed 'em." NO! Women are the victims in 94-95 precent of reported domestic violence cases. The statistics may be low for men who may be too embarrassed to seek help. They may not have any idea where to turn for help or may, as many women, not know they are abused. Next week, the series on domestic violence and abuse will resume as we focus on abused men. Below is a check list compiled by No to Abuse. Ask yourself these questions. If you answer YES to any of these things, you may be abused. Call 751-1118, "No to Abuse" to get help.
