Keep up coverage of odor ordeal

Regarding the Thursday article, “Marysville, Tulalips seek Seattle’s help in odor debate with Cedar Grove Composting“:

Thank you so much for continuing to follow this story line. We have lived in the Sunnyside area of Marysville for over 10 years and the odor the past 24 months has continued to worsen to where we cannot enjoy our deck or hot tub in the evenings. On hot days like Wednesday, the smell comes into our home with the fans when we try to cool it down in the evenings — horrible and no way to escape it.

The economy and declining home values have been disheartening enough. Continuing to pay your mortgage and enjoy your upside-down home is difficult already — dealing with decreased enjoyment due to stench created by irresponsible operations of local business is intolerable. We will continue to support community leaders and citizen groups until we get rid of the smells.

Please continue to keep the pressure on Cedar Grove. Their claims of innocence are false, arrogant attempts to keep their profits going at the expense of the Marysville/Tulalip community.
