A couple of days ago my buddy Pat Weymouth sent me this notice. He told me that a friend of his, who lives in a relatively new development on
Sheppards Lane in , found it in their mailbox recently. Clarksville
This relatively new development is adjacent to a relatively older 150 acre farm owned by Marshall Rae. Marshall Rae happens to have a mailing address in
. As Pat pointed out to me, “ground zero for chickens..” Milford, DE
Today I saw this story by Jessica Anderson in The Sun about a “nauseating” smell complaint received by the HoCo Health Dept. Residents reported “a nauseating, pungent odor from the area of
108 and Maryland Sheppard Lane.”
That’s a country smell baby. The health department followed up “and found the source to be coming from fertilizer on a large farm."
"They received the same calls last year, she said. They expect rain to reduce the stench.”
I wonder how the HoCo loco politicos handle these calls. The temptation to ask what they expected when they bought a home next to farm must be difficult to resist. I don’t think I could do it.
And speaking of shepherds, Mary Catherine Cochran shared this video on her facebook page today. Good stuff.
