Thumbs down: Restive Rocky Ripple

Residents of Rocky Ripple continue to protest their proposed exclusion from a White River flood management project managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Final decisions have yet to be made, but the favored proposal offers no protections for the little town nestled between Butler University and the White River. Residents fear the plan may exacerbate their flood risk - a charge the Corps denies. All interested parties have an opportunity for constructive dialogue this Thursday. The Corps will hold an open house and hearing to provide handouts, answer questions and solicit written and oral comments on the various White River flood management scenarios outlined in its draft environmental impact statement. The open house is set for 5 p.m., followed by a hearing at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 23, at Meridian Street United Methodist Church, 5500 N. Meridian St.
