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.
Flood Waters Return To Findlay
An administrator in Findlay says the rise of the flood-prone Blanchard River has lessened and officials are hoping a predicted end to rain will help prevent major problems.
Todd Richard, zoning and flood plan administrator for the city of Findlay, says a few streets are closed but there has been no significant damage from the rising Blanchard River near Findlay.
Richard said Friday morning that a nursing home voluntarily evacuated its residents but he was not aware of any other people having to leave their homes.
Richard says the river was at 14 feet Friday, or about three feet above flood stage.
Some local schools were operating on two-hour delays on Friday.
The weather service predicted the river would rise by another 2 feet and crest Friday afternoon.
