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.
Revenues Drop At Ohio Gambling Casinos
Revenues are down at two new Ohio gambling casinos. In June, the first full month of operation, the Hollywood Casino in Toledo and the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland reported combined gross revenues of $46.5 million. In August that number dropped to $40.2 million. In another comparison, gamblers dropped just over $355 million into slot machines in June. That number fell to $291 million in August.
Casino revenues are taxed at a rate of 33 percent with most of the money going to county governments. Beginning next year schools will be receiving some of that money.
