Monks at the New Melleray Abbey share a worry common in hog country: They are afraid that a new farm expansion will make their monastery smell to high heaven. "People come from all over the United States for quiet, prayer and reflection," said Father Brendan Freeman, the abbot for the New Melleray Abbey near Dubuque. "We feel that's threatened. I think this is a good cause to stand up for."
