From the AP Wire:
Burning Manure Pile Has Neighbors Fuming
Milford, Neb.

http://www.newsday.com/news/nationw...07603.story?coll=sns-ap-nationworld-headlines

Highlights from article:
"A large pile of composting manure burning for almost two months has neighbors upset...
....But when the winds pick up, it's more than a vapor to neighbors, who can smell the result from as far as 9 miles away....
...knows it is troublesome and he wants to put it out within a month."

That's no stinky neighbor... that's a crappy neighbor :p
How can manure be piled up in a residential sector? That's outrageous! Not only for the smell, but also for the public health consequences. :-{

Wow... that would not be fun. I wonder what people think of the smells that come from composting centers?

Yuck....

I used to work in a city that would stockpile its municipal sewer system compost for months to let the bugs kill the bad stuff before unleashing it on local farms.....think of that next time you have a slice of bread or eat a mushroom..... :-c Those piles were in the middle of the City and would stink to high hell.
