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 City Council Looks To Expand Natural Gas Fleet
Listen to the Story
Columbus City Council tonight looks to take the final step in approving the city’s first natural gas fueling station, a major part of Mayor Michael Coleman’s “Green Fleet Action Plan.”
Compressed natural gas burns much cleaner than gasoline and diesel, and it costs less up to 50 percent less. But the main hurdle for city leaders in building a natural gas fleet has been a lack of filling stations. The city’s first natural gas vehicle went into use two years ago, but it’s been filling up at an outlying county-owned station.
Tonight, council is set to approve just under a million dollars for a fueling station on Groves Road, where most city vehicles are now stored. The Mayor’s plan calls for as many as 20 city vehicles to be running on compressed natural gas by the time the filling station opens, which is tentatively scheduled for later this year.
