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.
Prison System To Resume Jail Inspections
Ohio prisons officials haven’t completed annual inspections of local jails since 2008 but plan to resume the checks soon on a biennial basis.
The corrections department stopped doing the inspections after the number of inspectors dropped from four to one because of budget cuts.
Administrator Roger Wilson says the state checks jails in response to complaints but has focused instead on creating better standards for jails, which processes hundreds of thousands of people annually. Critics say the lack of inspections at the 349 county and city jails in Ohio could jeopardize inmates’ health and safety.
