Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

WEST PALM BEACH -- (AP) -- State officials accused a man of having 15-foot-high mounds of horse manure on his property without a permit.

Walter Duque, 22, is estimated to have stockpiled enough manure on his five-acre property in Loxahatchee Groves to fill 1,000 dump trucks, the Department of Environmental Protection said. He was cited for illegal manure composting, said department spokesman Steve Webster.

Neighbors complained about foul smells floating through the neighborhood, state officials said in a news release. Investigators said they believe Duque may have been accepting loads of horse manure from nearby communities, illegally composting the waste and selling it.

State environmental officials said they first received complaints in 2002. Duque was told to get the required permits for composting waste, which require specific nutrient and storm water management plans to protect ground and surface water.

Duque is a registered manure hauler in nearby Wellington, officials said.
