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.
Kasich Reduces Williams-Bolar Charges
Governor John Kasich has reduced the charges against a woman jailed for using her father’s address to enroll her children in a neighboring school district. Kelley Williams-Bolar, of Akron, served nine days in jail earlier this year for falsifying information on records that she used to send her daughters to a school outside the city.
She said her conviction for felony records tampering threatened her efforts to earn her teacher’s license. Kasich on Wednesday reduced Williams-Bolar’s convictions from two felonies to two misdemeanors, saying the original penalty was excessive for what Williams-Bolar did.
Her attorney says the ruling will make it easier for Williams-Bolar to keep her job as a teacher’s aide.
