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.
Ohio foodbanks face shortages
Ohio’s food banks and food pantries face increasingly bare shelves heading into the winter months. This apparent shortage comes even as the latest state unemployment figures show fewer people are looking for work.
The facts seem to contradict themselves. Donations to Ohio’s food banks are up slightly, yet food bank directors say they’re facing shortages. Unemployment rates are improved while demand for emergency food has risen dramatically in recent months. But, it’s all connected.
The Mid Ohio Food Bank is distributing 20% more food, yet its warehouse shelves are more bare than usual. Hunger advocates say many people who were laid from good paying jobs, can now only find work at low end retailers or restaurants earning little more than minimum wage.
