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.
Approval Of Liquor Issue Clears Way For Entertainment District
City leaders in Upper Arlington say they’re ready to proceed a planned entertainment district now that voters have approved expanded liquor sales.
Voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved allowing alcohol sales in all parts of the 39-acre development on Lane Avenue. City council president Frank Ciotola says the district will include a hotel, apartments, additional restaurants, and office space.
“It shoud add some more vitality to the area. And there are other parcels that might end up being developed a little bit at a time, but obviously this is going to be the big bulk of it.”
Ciotola expects most of the work to be finished in about a year.
City leaders had feared that a possible “no” vote on the liquor issue would have outlawed liquor sales by long-time businesses in the area.
