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.
State Regulators Spare Customers, Revert To Old AEP Rates
There’s some relief for businesses and school districts that have criticized recent electric rate hikes.
The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio on Thursday rejected a rate structuring formula instituted this year by Columbus-based American Electric Power. The PUCO ordered AEP to return its rates to levels similar to those in place in December.
These rates will remain in place until a new rate plan is adopted.
The PUCO chairman says the decision allows regulators to start over and ensure they have a complete picture of any rate proposal to balance the interests of customers and the utility.
