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.
Long-Awaited Bypass Road Opening In Southeast Ohio
Officials are ready to open a new bypass road that cuts through a national forest in southeast Ohio.
The new section of U.S. Route 33 around the city of Nelsonville was scheduled to open hours after a Tuesday morning ceremony.
Route 33 is heavily used by motorists traveling between Columbus and southeast Ohio and those headed to Ohio University in Athens from points all over the state. The bypass is expected to relieve traffic jams on the main two-lane road through Nelsonville.
The bypass had been discussed for decades, and construction on the $175 million project started in 2007.
It passes through Wayne National Forest. The state spent more than $10 million just on making sure wildlife in the area and the environment were protected.
