I was very disturbed to hear that there are plans to flood areas that contain Native American burial sites. I say absolutely not. Would we want our ancestor's resting places flooded to make way for a lake and homes? Where has respect gone to?I feel we have incurred enough injustices on these kind, forgiving people.Maybe AIM should pay the people of Dallas county a wake up call.

I agree that it would be nice to keep dallas county small and from growing and expanding the way it has in the past. But also I think people need to look at it as progress. Being this close to Des moines its going to happen eventually whether you like it or not and there is nothing you can do about it. I mean what do you think the people of a once rural polk county thought as Des moines kept expanding? The fact of the matter is the majority of people in Dallas county dont live in the affected area and probably dont care if it happens or not. As far as government is concerned it would create more tax revenue so there probably wont be any argument from them.
