To The Daily Sun,
We were stuck in a regular Meredith summer traffic backup when we were assailed by horrible odors and breath-taking fumes. We were stuck in traffic directly between the Mayhew Funeral Home and MacDonald's when we experienced the odors and fumes. We could see the heat emissions coming from the crematorium chimney and the wind was blowing directly toward us. We suffered from this odor for a couple of minutes until, blessedly, the traffic began moving. I would certainly hate to have to endure this obnoxious odor on a full-time basis like the poor people at the Motorcycle Museum have to. It was an odor like I have never experienced before and I don't want to again.
For anyone to try to claim that the crematorium does not emit such fumes and odors, we can only say they are living in a stinky cloud cuckooland. In fact, we are betting that the crematorium will not be used during Motorcycle Week since it will be so obvious as to its emissions.
We have absolutely no connection to either the Motorcycle Museum or Mayhew Funeral Home other than we have been to the museum once and the funeral home a couple of times. But we did get stuck in traffic and did experience the fumes and odors from the crematorium — the crematorium that is now claiming they don't exist.
Mayhew really needs to fix that chimney or shut down the crematorium. Claiming it does not emit any gasses or fumes when the overwhelming evidence shows otherwise is ridiculous.
