Boner of the Day

Boner Candidate #1: OH THAT? WE THREW THAT AWAY.

A northeast Ohio hospital has settled a lawsuit over alleged negligence that indicated the remains of an infant that died before birth were disposed of without the mother’s consent. Court filings by attorneys for the Youngstown woman, Lytanya Wylie, and St. Elizabeth Health Center indicated the infant’s remains probably were discarded with medical waste, not saved for the burial the family planned. The lawsuit said Wylie was pregnant with twins, and one survived but the other died before her June 2013 delivery. The hospital denied Wylie’s allegations, though filings indicate that a pathology lab supervisor concluded the remains likely were discarded with other tissue. Wylie sought thousands of dollars in punitive damages. A 2014 Facebook post shows Wylie purchased a memorial headstone for her infant, which she named Precious, and said she misses the child every day.

Boner Candidate #2: I HAD TO DO SOMETHING; THEY WERE EVERYWHERE

A Centralia, Washington, man was arrested Monday morning after he nearly started a fire while trying to get rid of some cockroaches using a homemade flamethrower, police said. The man, who was not immediately identified, reportedly got so fed up with roaches in his apartment that he used a can of bug spray, in concert with a lighter, to create an impromptu flamethrower in an effort to try and drive the pestilent insects from his residence. When he began to notice smoke, he apparently realized the folly of his ways and fled the apartment, alerting some neighbors that something might be on fire, Officer John Panco, a Centralia police spokesman, told The Oregonian/OregonLive.  One of his neighbors called 911 to report the incident on the 300 block of North Tower Avenue in the central Washington town of roughly 16,000, which sits on Interstate 5 south of Olympia, Panco said. But by the time police and fire crews arrived, the fire — or at least the threat of one — had dissipated. There was no damage to the apartment and, contrary to earlier media reports, it did not appear that any flames had broken out, Panco said.

Boner Candidate #3: THE NEW MODEL FOR MAYOR

Scott Silverthorne built a reputation as a civic pillar of Fairfax City, Va., over three decades, helping bring a park to the affluent suburb’s downtown and championing other improvements during his stints as a City Council member and mayor. But even as he was the public face of the city, police said, Silverthorne was privately leading another life online: using a website to swap methamphetamine for sex with other men. That other side of Silverthorne, 50, burst into public view Friday, as Fairfax County police announced that he had been charged following a sting in which they said he agreed to give an undercover officer the drug in exchange for an orgy at a Tysons hotel. The arrest marked a stunning downfall for Silverthorne, who had followed his father into the mayor’s office, recently beaten cancer and coped with the loss of his job and house. Through text messages, Silverthorne declined to discuss the charges.
