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.
Boehner Backs Bill To Keep Alive Ohio Uranium Plant
House Speaker John Boehner said he would support legislation to allow the Obama administration to spend an estimated $150 million to help a uranium enrichment project in southern Ohio move forward.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that a bill is expected to be introduced by members of the Ohio congressional delegation and could reach the House floor next month.
The Piketon plant would be at the site of a former gaseous diffusion plant that enriched uranium during the Cold War. It would produce enriched uranium for use in generating electricity at nuclear power plants.
Boehner, R-West Chester, has taken heat for not including the $150 million in a temporary spending bill. Boehner said the project would “create jobs and strengthen America’s energy security.”
