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 Food Stamp Cut Won’t Be As Severe As Expected
A drop in food stamp benefits for some Ohioans won’t be as steep as first feared a few weeks ago.
Ohio officials say a change in the way the federal government calculates the benefits means some Ohio families will lose $23 a month.
That’s better than the $50 a month drop the state was anticipating.
State officials appealed an earlier decision that would have led to the much larger reduction.
The cut won’t apply to all 869,000 households receiving food stamps, but only to some homeowners and renters who have a “standard utility allowance” deducted when determining whether they are eligible for food stamps.
