Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Campaign visits cost Columbus thousands
When it comes to presidential campaigning few states are getting more attention than Ohio. The candidates have stopped in Ohio more than 40 times so far this year including 6 visits to Columbus.
But being the center of attention is getting expensive. Although the campaigns are required to pay most expenses, cities are on their own when it comes to security. So far this year, campaign-related police work has cost the city of Columbus $113,000.
But City and State Officials say traffic snarls and overtime costs can’t compete with the intangibles. For example, all the free P-R that comes from having the national spotlight focused on Columbus.
