I lived there for a few years and that place is indeed smelly. The locals actually call it Sewer City, or "the Sewer". The cause of the smell is a meat packing plant that in located in the middle of the city.

I lived there for the first 18 years of my life, and the only time you smell anything is when you are near the stockyards. It is actually a pretty nice community, and some of the coolest people I know are from there.

However their politics are way too far right for my taste; Steve King is a moron.

I think after living there for a while you grow accustomed to the smell. However, after moving away and then returning a few months later, that smell hits pretty hard. It is significantly stronger by the stockyards and the meat plant, but it still lingers throughout the city.

To me, that city just seemed too depressing. Everything was a controversy (which probably has much to do with the towns politics, and the fact that I went to Heelan) and everything seemed to be running down. They are doing some great work out by the mall. Not sure the last time you were there but it's really expanded.

Personally, I vowed never to return there, even though I have met some great people and life long friends.. But then again, I wasn't born there as you were, so my ties are not as strong.

I return all of the time, my parents live there. I don't know where you hang out, but there is no unusual smell in SC. It covers a pretty large area, and I don't know what would be powerful enough to blanket the whole place.

BTW, the stockyards are hardly in use anymore, and all of the rendering and packing house stuff has moved across the river. You may be smelling Cargill or something like that south and east.

I haven't been back there in quite a few years, didn't realize the packing house stuff moved. I'm sure that has help.
I guess every city has their own smell. Cedar Rapids often smells weird and that smell sometimes carries to Iowa City.
Personally, when I think back to my years spent in the Sewer, the smell is the first thing to come to mind.

I thought that 9 hole course wasn't too shabby! The uphill shot was killer - and unloading my bag on 9 was a BLAST!
