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.
Citizen Panel Approves Levy Request, Sets Millage
A levy likely to go before Columbus voters next year would raise $515 million over the next five years.
A citizen panel approved the levy request for Columbus City Schools yesterday. The majority of new money would fund general spending priorities, with $8.5 million going to high-performing non-profit charter schools and a new preschool program every year.
The 9 mil levy would mean new property of $315 a year for a home worth $100,000. That’s a 24 percent increase over current Columbus school taxes.
