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.
Ohio Supreme Court Rules On Westerville School Tax Question
The Ohio Supreme Court rejected an appeal by an anti-tax group in Westerville to reduce school district property taxes.
As a result of the Thursday ruling, voters in the Westerville City school district will be denied a chance to weigh in on a proposed tax levy reduction.
The group called Taxpayers for Westerville Schools sucessfully petitioned to place a repeal of part of a 2009 tax levy on the November 6th ballot. But, district resident Eugene Hollins protested the petition and the Franklin County Board of Elections ruled in Hollins’ favor and pulled the issue from the ballot.
Now, the Ohio Supreme Court has upheld the Board of Elections decision. Franklin County ballots will be mailed to military personnel beginning Saturday. Board spokesman Ben Piscatelli says the Westerville school issue will not be listed on the ballot.
