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.
Penn National Says It Prefers West Side For New Casino.
Penn National Gaming says it wants to build a $250,000,000 dollar casino on the city’s west side. Company president Tim Wilmott told a news conference this morning that the company has entered an agreement to buy the former Delphi site on Georgesville Road. Penn National still needs statewide voter approval before it begins construction. Ohio voters approved a site in the Arena District when they changed the state constitution last November. But, Mayor Michael Coleman and others opposed siting the casino in the Arena District. In a news release this morning, Penn National says it prefers the Delphi site because of what it calls its “excellent highway access.” The site is located adjacent to the Interstate 270-Interstate 70 interchange on the city’s west side.
