Boiled Poop Smells and Lead in the Water: Our Most Popular Stories This Week

You think you've had a shitty week? If it makes you feel any better, the tenants at the South Harbor Plaza near Port Everglades on SE 17th St. are having a much shittier week than you.

Actual shit nearby has been causing a foul odor to envelop the area, with residents and shop owners complaining that it's bad for business. (No shit!) Longtime activist Russ Rector describes the stench as such: ""It smells like poop, or actually, like someone took a pot of poop and put it on the stove and tried to boil it."

In other non-shit-related news, this week New Times highlighted the most expensive properties across South Florida and spoke with photographer Johanne Rahaman, who has been documenting Florida's black population.
