A huge clean-up project was conducted in Earth on Friday afternoon, May 2, 2003, and 157 children in grades one through five expended a lot of energy to get the 150' x 250' area cleaned up. The area is on the corner of Main Street (U.S. Highway 70) and Farm Road 1055 and will be turned into a city park. Plans call for the city's work on the park to begin in the middle of this month. The area will be deep ripped and leveled out, and grass and trees will be planted. At least three former business buildings, including Taylor's Market Basket, the Justice of the Peace's office, and others were knocked down a couple of weeks ago to make way for the park. Mayor Doug Parish said, "We may even put up a gazebo." Elaine Brownd, second grade teacher, was in charge of the school's involvement in the project.
