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.
Ohio Amish Argue Against Guradian In Chemo Case
An Ohio Amish couple who fled with their 11-year-old daughter so she wouldn’t be forced to get chemotherapy say a court was wrong to appoint a guardian to make medical decisions for her.
The lawyer for Sarah Hershberger’s family argues for a reversal of that decision in a new filing in their state court appeal. He says Ohio’s guardianship statutes appear to let courts substitute their judgment for that of suitable parents, and that the court should take a narrower view limiting such second-guessing by the state.
The guardian wants to stop trying to force Sarah to resume chemotherapy and has asked to resign. A Medina County judge hasn’t decided whether to accept the request, which could end the family’s fight against a hospital.
