I cannot believe anyone who lives here would pen such a holier than thou comment regarding compost smell

I am responding to the letter from Ms. Duffield in (the Aug. 14) paper regarding Tanner Ridge residents’ complaints over the Stanhope Farm composting facility.

I cannot believe anyone who lives here would pen such a holier than thou comment and if she does I suspect her olfactory senses are seriously missing or impaired.

Those of us still possessing a sense of smell have endured a stomach churning stench almost daily the entire summer, resulting in many otherwise beautiful days being trapped indoors and possibly a loss of income for bed and breakfast owners and a devaluing of property for those wishing to sell their homes.
