GUILFORD, Ind. (AP) — A longtime Xavier University professor has died after his all-terrain vehicle overturned on his southeastern Indiana property.

Indiana conservation officers say family members found 66-year-old Philip Glasgo of Guilford on Monday afternoon after he had not returned home for an extended period from checking fencing on his property about 20 miles west of Cincinnati, Ohio. They found him unconscious under the vehicle.

Officers say the accident is under investigation.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Glasgo was an associate finance professor who began teaching at the Xavier, located in Cincinnati, in 1984. Previously, he taught at the University of Cincinnati.

FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol is investigating what led up to a wrong-way crash that killed two people in northern Ohio.

The crash happened Monday night on State Route 20 in Fremont.

Troopers say a car driven by 61-year-old Charles Starks of Fremont was going the wrong way when it struck a pickup truck driven by 57-year-old Evelyn Hunt of Fremont.

The patrol says both drivers were killed and that Hunt's 15-year-old grandson was injured.

Evelyn Hunt's husband tells The News-Messenger in Fremont that his wife and grandson were out Christmas shopping when the crash occurred.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A 91-year-old Ohio man has been recognized for his World War II service with a Congressional Gold Medal.

John Lee Cooper was one of about 20,000 African-American recruits trained to become Marines at Montford Point, N.C., adjacent to Camp Lejeune, between 1942 and 1949.

Like the Tuskegee Airmen, the Montford Point Marines served in segregated units separate from their white counterparts. After boot camp, Cooper was sent to the Pacific theater during the war.

"It means everything to me," Cooper said Monday at the Hospice of Dayton, where the ceremony was held. "I thought maybe they had forgotten about me."

Cooper heard a presidential proclamation and congressional and mayoral letters read during the ceremony in his honor.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A mysterious clean-energy initiative headed toward Ohio's 2014 ballot is a one-of-a-kind nonpartisan measure driven by a group of concerned Ohio residents, a strategist for the campaign said in an Associated Press interview.

If approved, the Ohio Clean Energy Initiative would require $1.3 billion in annual investments over a decade in infrastructure, research and development related to solar, wind and other energy sources.

A private entity called Ohio Energy Initiative Commission LLC, a Delaware corporation, would pick eligible projects.

German Trejo, a spokesman for Yes for Ohio's Clean Energy Future campaign, said the commission's corporate structure makes it free of political influence.

Body in NE Ohio field was suspect in sex abuse case

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — Police say a body found in a northeastern Ohio cornfield is that of a man who was being investigated in a child sex abuse case.

A coroner in Lorain County says the man found dead two weeks ago was Jeffrey Cannon of Elyria. He'd been missing since September.

A cause of death has not been determined.

Police in Elyria tell the Morning Journal in Lorain (http://bit.ly/1gUqNZ1 ) that Cannon was a suspect in a sexual abuse case involving two 8-year-old children before he came up missing.

Police say Cannon had been questioned by investigators and was supposed to talk with detectives again.

A farmer plowing a field found Cannon's body on Dec. 11 in Elyria, a little over 25 miles west of Cleveland.
