Strange Stones Still Being Surveyed in Hoosier National Forest

Play

After some investigation at the Hoosier National Forest, where unusual rock structures have been discovered, theories are forming about the excavations.

Volunteers and archaeologists have been excavating a 19th-to-early-20th century German farmstead near the Ohio River, along with ten domes made up of stacked stones.

According to Heritage Resource Specialist Angie Krieger, one possible explanation for the rock formations comes from the Civilian Conservation Corporation (that’s CCC), a public work relief program founded during The Great Depression.

Krieger says “The CCC were very active in the German era in the 1930’s and 1940’s, and did a lot of building and construction in stone.”

Timothy Baumann, archeology curator at the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture in Tennessee, is involved with this investigation.

While no conclusions have been made, Baumann says that no artifacts were found in the surrounding area, adding to the formation’s mystery.

ACLU takes on SEA371
Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky filed a lawsuit in federal court this morning challenging Indiana’s newest law regulating abortion clinics. Senate Enrolled Act 371, passed earlier this year, calls for facilities that prescribe and dispense abortion-inducing medications to have many of the same emergency and urgent care resources as hospitals. The bill affects only one facility in the state, Planned Parenthood’s Lafayette clinic, which has been in operation for 40 years, providing a variety of health care services for women. The portion of the bill covering non-surgical abortions goes into effect on January first. Betty Cockrum, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, says the expense of retrofitting the facility to comply with the law would be prohibitive. The law also specifies numerous “informed consent” statements clinic workers must make to women seeking the abortion pill. The women must also be shown sonogram images of the fetus in their wombs and must be advised the availability of adoption alternatives in the state. Correspondent Michael Glab spoke with Cockrum this afternoon in a WFHB Feature Exclusive.
