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.
Cooper Stadium Moves Into Private Ownership
It took four years, but Franklin County Commissioners have signed off on a plan to sell Cooper Stadium.
The four-year long process was finalized yesterday. Arshot Investment Corporation plans to spend between $30 and $40 million to turn the Mound Street property into a racetrack and automotive center.
The $3.4 million sale had been help up over noise studies and other wrangling over having a racetrack near the densely-packed Franklinton neighborhood.
Some residents remain staunchly opposed to the track.
