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.
Hot Weather, Algae Kills Fish At Ohio Lake
High temperatures have contributed to the growth of toxic blue-green algae that has killed scores of fish in Ohio’s largest inland lake.
Area residents and Ohio parks officials found several hundred dead fish floating in the shoreline channels of Grand Lake St. Marys in western Ohio last weekend.
Fish kills are an annual summertime occurrence at the shallow, 13,000-acre lake when decomposing algae rob the water of oxygen and suffocate them. It grows thick from feeding on phosphorus from manure and fertilizers that wash from nearby farm fields.
Milt Miller, manager of the Grand Lake St. Marys Restoration Commission, says that the recent hot days and calm lake with no wind contributed to the algae growth.
The state has spent millions trying to fight algae there.
