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.
Gov. Kasich: Ohio Request For Disaster Declaration Denied
Gov. John Kasich says the U.S. government denied his request seeking maximum federal aid to help a tornado-damaged county in southwest Ohio.
Kasich had asked President Barack Obama this week to issue a disaster declaration for Clermont County to allow maximum relief funding for residents hit by severe storms a week ago.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Kasich told county officials in an email late Friday that his request was turned down. He says he’ll seek a different type of disaster relief this weekend through the Small Business Administration.
The governor initially had told federal authorities additional assistance wasn’t necessary as the damage was being evaluated.
Three people were killed and hundreds of buildings were damaged in southwest Ohio by the storm system that killed dozens across five states.
