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.
Smokestacks in Columbus to come down this morning
Spectators will have to find their own vantage points if they want to watch officials demolish three smokestacks in Columbus this morning.
Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman and others are expected to help detonate charges on each of the 272-foot-tall smokestacks at 10:00 am.
Officials say visitors will not be allowed on the site on the city’s south side just east of Interstate 71.
The stacks are part of a $200 dollar trash-burning power plant that opened in June 1983. Officials voted to close the plant in 1994.
Robert Wilson lives in the area. He says the demolition of thecentral Ohio landmark is the end of an era.
Officials say workers should begin demolishing the plant’s main building in about a month.
