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.
Ohio Anti-Abortion Group To Replace Exec. Director
Ohio Right to Life is seeking a new executive director after a tumultuous year of feuding inside the anti-abortion community.
In a statement Thursday, board chairman Marshal Pitchford said the opening follows a decision to elevate current director Mike Gonidakis into a new role. He will be the group’s point person on national issues, oversee its Political Action Committee and advise staff on state legislative matters.
Pitchford characterized the move as “strategic restructuring” of the state’s oldest and largest anti-abortion group.
Gonidakis’ leadership has been criticized by some anti-abortion activists who have defected from Right to Life this year. They’ve joined forces with a rival coalition backing a controversial bill banning most abortions at the first detectable fetal heartbeat.
Ohio Right to Life declined to endorse the pending measure.
