“The city has a legal obligation to enforce laws that make Fresno a safe and healthy place for all its residents, no matter their income level, race, or the neighborhood where they live. West Fresno residents will seek to enforce that duty," says Phoebe Seaton of California Rural Legal Assistance, who is representing the CCWF.

The West Fresno neighborhood near Church and Fruit is pretty quiet. There are no people in the park and the streets are empty. Residents say there's something in the air.

Arogeanae Brown said, "it smells like dog food mixed with throw up to me, it's very nasty.

Mary Curry said, "it's very sickening, it makes you want to up-chuck."

Marry Curry has been fighting the odor since 2005. She said it comes from Darling International, a meat rendering plant across the street.

"We recognize there's a need for the kind of work they do but they need to relocate. They're sitting in the heart of a community," Curry said.

She is taking the fight to the the courthouse. Monday morning she filed a lawsuit and announced it on the steps of City Hall, backed by her neighbors. They claim Darling has been operating without a proper permit and the city has done nothing about it for 40 years.

"We've been more than patient," she added, "our lives and our children are at stake and it's time someone stepped up."

City Attorney Jim Sanchez said Darling doesn't have the permit, The Condition of Use Permit to be exact. But he also said the lawsuit is unfortunate and premature-mature because the city has been going through a mediation process with both sides.

In a statement, Darling Management said quote, "Like the citizens group, Darling International urges the City of Fresno to stop the delays and do what is legally and morally required by honoring the permits it accepted years ago."

Darling has been operating in Fresno since the 50's. It was annexed into the city in the 70's. Management believes the original permit is still valid.

Is this gratuitous, sappy, sagury, overtly sentimental public display of affection appropriate for this blog? Or for that matter the Internet? I mean, why don't you just stand out on the rooftop and shout it out to everyone? Wouldn't that be more effective??? See, now I've got guilt and I'm gonna have to do something like this for my wife's birthday. Thank goodness it isn't until October wait, I mean September

This design is scaltacuper! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
