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.
Ousted Ohio Schools Chief Sues Over Firing
A former district superintendent in southwestern Ohio and her son are suing to keep their jobs amid a state investigation into altered attendance records.
Donna Hubbard, former superintendent of Lockland Schools, and her son filed the suit on Wednesday, alleging the school board violated open-meetings laws last week when it voted 3-1 to oust them.
Hubbard accuses the board of deliberating about their decision behind closed doors during a public meeting.
Board members insist that they only went behind closed doors to confer with their attorney, and that all discussion and the vote happened during the public portion.
The district, just outside of Cincinnati, is being investigated for improperly listing students as withdrawn to improve its state report card numbers.
