(FROM DAYTON DAILY NEWS)COLUMBUS, Ohio — The body of an Ohio man has been found after his co-workers reported him missing last week.
Police say 54-year-old Paul Frazier was reported missing when he failed to show up for work.
Police believe Frazier’s car went over an embankment Sept. 27 on Interstate 270 in Gahanna. Police received a report of a car swerving on the interstate and hitting the embankment, but they did not have an exact location and were unable to find the crash.
Frazier’s body was found Thursday morning in a ditch, west of the crash site.
Police say Frazier apparently smashed the back window to get out of the car and walk away.
The Franklin County coroner said Frazier had been dead for at least two days.
MANY NOT HAPPY WITH NEW SCHOOL LUNCH GUIDELINES, PROGRAM (FROM NEWS SUN) Many students and parents have reacted strongly to new guidelines for the National School Lunch program mandating calorie limits and more fruits and vegetables, saying the meals are unappealing or leave kids hungry after eating.
The changes began this school year and affect more than 1.1 million Ohio students who participate in the program, which served more than 180 million meals at reduced cost or no charge in fiscal year 2011. Some say the changes go too far, while others argue they are necessary for student health.
Danielle Geeting, whose nine children in kindergarten through 11th grade attend Tecumseh schools, said the portions are much smaller than they were last year.
