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.
Columbus To Add Tracking Devices To City Vehicles
Columbus city leaders plan to track the speed and location of its police cruisers and other city-owned vehicles in hopes of saving fuel and boosting employee efficiency.
Columbus City Council members on Monday approved spending $1.9 million for GPS tracking and monitoring systems in its vehicles. It would show supervisors when employees speed or visit unauthorized sites. It also could help recover stolen vehicles and illustrate which equipment is underused.
The city’s finance director says officials anticipate the benefit in fuel savings and efficiency would be larger than the costs. He says it will take months to get the tracking systems ready.
The head of the union for city police says the program raises concerns because it would involve discipline, which must be negotiated with union officials.
