CINCINNATI (AP) — Some Ohio military veterans eligible for state-funded bonuses of up to $1,500 only have days left to apply.

Ohio veterans who served during the Persian Gulf war era must have their applications in no later than Tuesday to receive the bonuses funded by a $200 million bond issue approved by Ohio voters in 2009.

The bonuses are open to veterans who served anywhere in the world during the Persian Gulf war era as well as the eras of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But application times for the lraq and Afghanistan periods continue past Tuesday.

The Ohio Department of Veterans Services director urges veterans to check if they think they may be eligible. Director Tim Gorrell says veterans owe it to themselves and their families to find out if they qualify.

Michigan bill would strip driver's license from truant kids

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Legislation in Lansing would take away driver's licenses from students repeatedly absent from school.

Democratic Rep. Andy Schor of Lansing introduced the bill last week to combat the problem of truancy. He says driving is a privilege and there's no bigger incentive for most teens than being able to drive.

The legislation would compel judges to notify the secretary of state of cases of truancy. The secretary of state would have to suspend the license of a juvenile found by a circuit court to be willfully and repeatedly absent from schools for six months.

In cases where a juvenile hasn't yet been issued a license, he or she would be denied a license.

Michigan law requires students to be in school until age 18.

PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — State troopers in northeast Ohio say multiple crashes involving up to 40 vehicles have shut down the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 east of Cleveland.

The accidents have closed an 11-mile stretch of I-90 near the city of Painesville. That's about 30 miles east of downtown Cleveland.

Troopers say there aren't any serious injuries in the crashes that began before noon.

The State Highway Patrol says it expects the eastbound lanes will remain closed through much of Tuesday afternoon. Troopers say snow and ice are making driving conditions hazardous in that area of Lake County.

Interstate 90 links Cleveland with Erie, Pa., and Buffalo, N.Y.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Officials say enough venison for about 234,000 meals has been donated to local food banks by Ohio deer hunters during the 2013 hunting season.

The wildlife division of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry say hunters donated about 58,500 pounds of meat from 1,170 white-tailed deer. One processed deer amounts to about 50 pounds of venison and 200 meals.

The wildlife division and the farmers and hunters group help with processing costs. Hunters who want to donate their deer aren't required to pay for the processing as long as the program has funds available.

Deer meat donations will be accepted through the close of deer-archery season, which ends Feb. 2.

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.
