As Marky would say:

I've sat on both sides of the table with these people. Most are reacting with emotions rather than with facts.
On the composting issue, one stated that the airborne contaminates would affect the taste of his product.,,,,, factual? Or emotional? Between the compost site and this business is Route 7A with alls kinds of traffic. Cars, trucks, tractors....all with exhaust pipes, all with rubber tires slowly disappearing....that has no affect on his product????
So what happens?
The town "leaders" give in. The business moves elsewhere, no additional jobs. Sh!tsbury loses again.
No wonder that town lost 185 residents between 2000 and 2010

What's your frigg'n point, Bennville lost 750 residents within the same period... This means that there were 935 residents who had the common sense to leave that shithole, or they DIED.....
