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 Selling 1 Prison, Taking 1 Back
Ohio plans to sell only one of five state prisons it put on the auction block in an unexpected twist on privatization plans being announced Thursday.
The Associated Press has learned that the state will sell the Lake Erie Correctional Institution in Ashtabula County to Corrections Corporation of America for $72.7 million,
more than the $50 million required to balance the state prisons budget.
Management Training Corporation, or MTC, of Centerville, Utah, will operate North Central Correctional Institution and the vacant Marion Juvenile Correctional Facility as a single prison camp,
saving 6 percent on state costs, according to information from the Ohio prisons department.
North Coast Correctional Treatment Facility in Lorain County, currently operated by MTC, will be returned to state control and merge with Grafton Correctional Institution.
