The annual Earth Day festivities took place in Brookside Park on Saturday. One event was a 5K race. From this starting point some 5Ks go north to John Deere Road and back and others go out Bunkum and come back. However, this race took a third route, into Weston Cemetery, over the Talbert Bridge, out Sparling, and back. Despite the nice weather, there were not many runners.
It seemed a little strange that along with Earth Day, the end of last week saw some big trees coming down. On Friday workers were removing this huge maple along Lincoln.
Below a second tree is being cut to pieces.
