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.
Columbus voters to decide smoking ban
Columbus voters will decide the city’s controversial smoking ban on November 2nd. Columbus City Council Wednesday afternoon put the issue on the ballot.
City Council which in June approved a ban on smoking in bars and restaurants, had two choices. It could recind its vote and the ban or it could but the question on the ballot.
That’s because smoking ban opponents collected the roughly 5,000 signatures to force a vote.
Marie Collart of the Central Ohio Breathing Association, a supporter of the ban, is confident of a victory on November 2nd.
Opponents of the ban did not attend the special council meeting. They argue the ban infringes on the rights of smokers and bar and restaurant owners and will cost business owners customers and money.
