NORWALK, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a 44-year-old man has killed in a weekend snowmobile accident in northern Ohio.

The Sandusky Register (http://bit.ly/1cKll7l) reports that Gary Jenkins of Norwalk was killed late Saturday when the snowmobile he was riding struck a culvert and threw him south of Sandusky.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the 1997 Ski-Doo snowmobile struck a tree after hitting the culvert. The Huron County coroner pronounced Jenkins — who was wearing a helmet — dead at the scene.

The crash is still under investigation.

"He said, 'We've got to stop, it's late and they need help,'" Nikki Knight told the Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/INP0kU ) on Sunday.

Detroit awaits direction on options to art sale

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit may have to rely on the generosity of strangers to keep its impressive art collection that was amassed with taxpayer dollars in better times.

The bankrupt city is expected to learn this week the value of roughly 2,800 of its pieces at the Detroit Institute of Arts when New York auction house Christie's delivers its final report to Kevin Orr, the state-appointed emergency manager who currently runs the Motor City's finances.

Christie's, which has been poring over the collection for months, said it will include recommendations for how Detroit might make money while maintaining ownership of some of its most valuable pieces — including Degas' "Dancers in the Green Room," Pisano's "The Path" and Renoir's "Graziella." But the city may have to sell off works many consider integral to the cultural soul of the city in order to help repay creditors, including retired public workers whose pensions could take a huge hit.

Orr had warned museum officials of the works' potential fate, creating an outcry in the art community here and elsewhere.

"I think it's so important that we can't let it fail," said 68-year-old philanthropist A. Paul Schaap.
