COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Ethan Boerner was born with Down syndrome, but he’s never let his disability define him. He’s a member of the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and that organization partnered with the Columbus Clippers to give him the chance of a lifetime. Boerner donned a Clippers jersey and hat Monday for a night as an honorary batboy against Toledo at Huntington Park. Ethan Boerner in the Clippers dugout With his ball glove in hand and a big smile, Boerner was greeted by high-fives from the players as he joined the Clippers in the dugout. “I love being here,” he said. “The guys are great.” At the start of the game, Ethan walked alongside Clippers Manager Tony Mansolino to give the batting lineup card to the umpires. “I got a few autographs,” Ethan said. “They even gave me a signed bat, it was awesome.” Ethan’s dad, Ed, stood alongside his son in the dugout as he ran out to gather the bats. Ed and Ethan Boerner “As a dad, oh, this is awesome for me because Ethan’s my little guy, always has been,” said Ed Boerner. “He’s just the number one guy in my life.” Ethan wanted to share the love on this special night. “I want to give a shout to my girlfriend,” he said. “Michele, I love you. Will you marry me?” No word yet on if she has accepted.

CRAWFORD COUNTY, Kan. — Only halfway through 2019, Crawford County is expecting another big year for tourism in the area. Last year, Crawford County saw more than 100,000 nights booked at area hotels. Leaders attribute the busy year to sporting events held at Pittsburg State, the free dental clinic held back in April at PSU and tourists coming to the different museums. The newest museum to pop up in Crawford County is the Girard Historical Museum. Months ago, the museum was at risk of being shut down due to low funds, but the visitors bureau has seen a great interest in the location and they plan on adding them to the funding roster. “When people come here one of the popular things to do is to visit a museum and learn about the history and there’s so much history here that attracts people. And with Girard having what they do with the Little Blue Books and the Appeal to Reason there’s a whole other segment to that can now brought that is of interest.” Devin Gorman, Crawford County Visitors Bureau Other museums receiving funding from the county include the Miner’s Hall Museum in Franklin and the Crawford County Historical Museum in Pittsburg. With funding from the county, the Girard History Museum will be functioning on the same level as other museums, being open five days a week.

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Drug overdoses are on the rise in central Ohio, according to Columbus Public Health. Columbus’ health commissioner Dr. Myshieka Roberts said during this current rash of overdoses, Naloxone saved several lives. “More than half of the incidents that they went to and responded to an overdose, individuals had already a dose of Narcan that was administered to them by a bystander,” said Roberts. That is why she pushes for everyone to have it. Dr. Roberts points to fentanyl as being the main culprit. Governor Mike DeWine agrees. “We have seen this change from, it started off as a pain med epidemic,” said DeWine. “People then were switching over to heroin, they’re now switching over to the fentanyl, and that fentanyl is now being mix in with virtually every single drug that is out there, and that’s really keeping the death rate up.” Five people died from overdoses in a 24-hour span last week, according to the Franklin County Coroner. DeWine said more work needs to be done. “This is a work in progress,” he said. DeWine said his administration wants to focus on preventing drug abuse in three ways. Start a K-12 age-appropriate education program about drugs, add more money so local law enforcement can expand their drug task force, and highlight where people can get treatment. “What I hear so often is, ‘My son’s addicted. I don’t know where to go,'” said DeWine. He said his administration could begin to put this plan into place if his version of the budget is approved.
