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.
Senate Takes Up Red Light Camera Ban
The Ohio Senate has begun considering a measure that would ban authorities from using cameras to determine whether drivers run red lights or violate speed limits.
The Senate started its hearings Tuesday. The House passed the measure in June.
It would allow the cameras only in 20-mph school zones if a law enforcement officer is on hand.
Some police and city officials say the cameras improve safety and traffic-monitoring efficiency. But camera opponents allege the devices are used to raise funds and say the bill could help end such abuse.
A case involving a southwest Ohio village has boosted the push for a statewide ban. After a speeding ticket blitz, a judge blocked Elmwood Place from using the cameras to catch speeders. The village has appealed.
