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.
Lawsuit Claims Salt Companies Bilked Ohio Out Of $50 Million
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says he’s filing an antitrust lawsuit against two of the nation’s largest suppliers of road salt.
DeWine says Cargill and Morton Salt bilked the state out of $50 million over the course of a decade by colluding to inflate salt prices.
“It’s just a very sad thing, and it’s sad commentary on the intelligence they think Ohio taxpayers have, that they could get away with this year after year,” DeWine says.
A spokesman for Cargill denies the claims and says an inspector general investigation last year found no wrongdoing.
