Stinky Common 


What's wrong? Stinky Common.

Who's responsible? Peter Bigelow, HRM manager of real property, 490-6047.

Remarks: After Nick, a Citadel High student, called to complain about the stinky Common, we dispatched patrol superintendent Laportno to investigate. "Smells like crap," he confirms. "Blame spring," says Bigelow. "When snow and ice are on top of rotting organic material like our fields, the methane is trapped and has nowhere to go. When the snow melts, the fields stink." But Laportno's garden doesn't stink. "My ass it doesn't stink," says Bigelow; "they all stink, go stick your nose in it."
