She says 575 overdose deaths from xylazine in Pennsylvania last year was an increase of over 600-percent in just five years.

County leaders are calling for the state to boost mental health funding and provide more funds toward the cost of 9-1-1 service for the coming year. Governor Josh Shapiro has proposed a 20-million-dollars boost to mental health funding with additional spending in future years. Shapiro has also proposed spending 100-million-dollars to boost school mental health services. But members of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania say that's not good enough. They estimate that counties will need a billion-and-a-half dollars to make up for the shortfalls in state funding. While they say that's what they need, the county leaders say they'll ask for about 150-million as a realistic figure of what they could actually get.

I thought he was real good," Thomson said. The Phillies return home tonight against Detroit.
