That smell you smelled this weekend was due to spraying of sludge from Wastewater Plant

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — If you hear someone say “Wellington stinks!” that statement had some merit this past weekend.But the great thing about this particular smell, it will subside soon (the meat packing plant is a work still in progress).Wellington Assistant City Manager Jason Newberry said the City Wastewater Plant is doing its periodical removing of by-products or sludge. The City of Wellington then provides the sludge for fertilizer to an area farmer, who is spraying it on his field south of town.“It just so happens the wind came from the south,” Newberry said. “Also, because it is before wheat harvest, there were limited amount of fields to use.”Newberry said the farmer is going to work the soil. Also the .10 inches of rain will help the smell subside.“It happens at this time every year,” Newberry said.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Thank you for your input. +11 Vote up Vote down Worried sick · 222 weeks ago I wonder if the citizens of Wellington, realise how very dangerous it is to be breathing in the fumes from this sewage. I recommend people do some research on reputable sites, on the internet. It causes serious health problems and, I for one, an very concerned. The article mentioned above, there were lack of fields to spread in. That, to me, seems even more dangerous because, that means they’ve dumped more, in these limited fields. Meaning, we’ve been breathing more concentrated fumes. Report Reply 0 replies · active 222 weeks ago +8 Vote up Vote down Concerned · 222 weeks ago This is not a once a year process. All year long that “stuff” is loaded onto a truck and taken to local fields or pastures. Yes, pastures where cattle roam and eat the grass. South of town there were 2 pastures that were used. These 2 pastures were located along a creek. A few years back, the State was contacted, came down and inspected. Shortly after that they never dumped on those 2 pastures again.

I was going to go into Penny’s Diner for a quick bite, but the smell was so strong and disgusting I got back in my car and left. No way I could eat anything after the strong stench hit me. Something needs to be done. There should be a limit on how close to town they can spread that “stuff”. Same thing happened last year – the whole town reeked for days. Welcome to Wellington. And as long as we are talking about stench – a few weeks ago the road from the packing plant going West into town was blood stained all the way to Countryside. Welcome to Wellington with a bright red trail of blood on our main highway into town from the East. The crosswalk for the kids from Kennedy also had blood in it from the packing plant.

Bruh moment of 9th November 2019: Frank Lampard reveals how walking his dog at…

first_imgImage Courtesy: Vantagenews/Chelsea FCAdvertisement 4701NBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs2pmWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E74fj( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 89dv7Would you ever consider trying this?😱bumq87Can your students do this? 🌚7z9Roller skating! Powered by Firework Club legend Frank Lampard is the 3rd manager for Chelsea in 3 seasons, but the successor to Maurizio Sarri has methodically countered the transfer ban and has been very successful in this season for the Blues. Although, the brit feels his squad’s favourable outcome is factored in by his peculiar routines before every game, and he’s very superstitious about it.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Vantagenews/Chelsea FCThe former Blues captain, who arrived at Stamford Bridge this year from Derby County, feels the need to perform certain pre-match  ‘rituals’ such as walking his pet dog or breaking a sweat in the gym, and is very structured about it, as he feels- “If I don’t do them, then I can feel like, ridiculously, as if it might have an effect on the result.”Speaking in a recent interview, the 41 year old revealed on his lucky charm activities.Advertisement “I walk the dog at certain times and on certain days”- he told reporters. “I take her out in the morning. I go out early before I leave, I take her down to the local coffee shop, get my takeaway coffee, walk around, pick up her poo, put it in the bin, walk her home then go to training.”“I find walking the dog quite good for clearing the head. I like to go to the gym as well – that’s another one of my superstitions. I have to spend the same amount of time on the bike – 50 minutes – or the amount that I run. Things like that. I’m still sweating now. I’ve just been doing it.” he added.Advertisement After his 3 match victory streak, Lampard was awarded the Premier League Manager of the Month award in October and is the only person in Premier League history to win both the Player and Manager of the Month awards with the same club.Chelsea are currently 2nd in the table after today’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, and will travel to Manchester to take on the Citizens on 23rd November.

first_img            FLAVIEN PRAT, ILLUMINANT, WINNER: “Yes, I expected to be that close to the pace. Fanticola was the only speed in the race so I knew I needed to be right there. My filly has speed too, so I knew it would be ok.“I think she improved off her Jenny Wiley (Grade I, 1 1/16 at Keeneland April 16) third place finish in her last out. The turf is a bit softer here and that’s maybe better for her, especially going a mile and an eighth. And here at Santa Anita I feel it’s better if you’re closer to the lead. At Keeneland, it’s a bigger turf course and when you come from off the pace there, it’s easier.“We work every day to win a race like this so I’ll really enjoy it and have to thank Michael McCarthy and all the connections.” ARON WELLMAN, ECLIPSE THOROUGHBRED PARTNERS, ILLUMINANT, WINNER: “First of all, all the credit has to go to this man, Michael McCarthy. This filly is high maintenance and he’s done a great job. She ran her heart out last time at Keeneland (when third, behind winner, Tepin and runner-up, Weekela). Winning big races like this at Santa Anita and other tracks around the country is what it’s all about. Without our partners we wouldn’t be able to do this.“We’re a Todd Pletcher organization, he’s our main man. As a disciple of Todd’s it just made all the sense in the world for us to support Michael when he hung up his shingle to go out on his own and I couldn’t be happier for him and his family. He’s got about five or six for us now.“Gary (Young) and I are a two man team at the two year old sales and we found her at the sale down in Ocala, FL together.”             MICHAEL MCCARTHY, ILLUMINANT, WINNER: “It’s pretty exciting to win a race like this. I thought she would run well today. She’s a very honest filly, tries hard and I thought the mile and an eighth would be right up her alley.“Fanticola is a very tough mare and I was just kinda hoping we would have enough to get to her. Luckily today, we did.”“I didn’t give Flavien a whole of instructions before the race. I didn’t think he needed it.” TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: Winning Owners, Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners and west coast representative, Aron Wellman operate out of Del Mar, CA.center_img JOCKEY QUOTES JAVIER CASTELLANO, WEKEELA, SECOND: “We had a perfect trip and we were in a good position the whole way. The pace was slow, but we were right behind the winner turning for home and that filly never stopped.” -30-last_img read more
