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.
ODOT Doubles Salt Usage
The Ohio Department of Transportation has used more than 66,000 tons of salt on Central Ohio roadways this winter.
O-DOT’s Breanna Watzka said that’s almost double compared to last year.
“It was a mild winter [last year]. But compared to the winter before that we used over 75,000 tons, so it’s about average.”
Watzka added there’s about 25,000 tons of salt remaining.
“We can order more at a moment’s notice, so we are more than prepared for anything else we get this winter and then to bring us into next year.”
O-DOT has spent about $77 million statewide on salt this season.
