Ken de la Bastide: Saving Wigwam faces critical June deadline


Mounds Lake support?

A check of the Mounds Lake website showed a listing of business and professional support for the proposed reservoir in Anderson that would extend eastward into Delaware County.

Listed as supporters of the proposal were: The Anderson Madison County Visitors and Convention Bureau; the Anderson Madison County Association of Realtors; and the Madison County Chamber of Commerce.

Those organizations should not be considered a surprise. Also listed is the Onward Alliance and the Delaware Tribe of Indiana.

The city of Anderson is named after Chief Anderson of the Delaware tribe, who located in the area in the late 1700s.

An email exchange shows the Tribe has never endorsed the project and was not aware of the history of it, said Gregory Brown, with the Tribe. He said they were asked to review the location for sensitivity for specific Delaware Tribe archaeological sites, which was misconstrued to imply support for the project.

Brown said the Tribe wants its name removed.
