“Clean up, clean up, everybody do your share.

Clean up, clean up, everybody everywhere!”

Barney, the purple dinosaur, has made these words famous, every age and every where.


Spring is just 10 days away and clean up is at the top of to do lists, from neighborhoods to small children at a day care center.


Businesses are clearing away remaining snow from parking lots, people are cleaning out their houses, preparing for yard sales and flea markets, and young people are doing yard and lawn clean up. Hardware and home stores are preparing for upcoming sales on cleaning, repairing and painting supplies.


Calhoun County will be the host to festivals, Civil War re-enactments, reunions, and other events that many visitors and friends will attend. It is time for all of us to do our part in making our homes and communities something that people will notice, instead of run down buildings and junky yards.


Sometimes, we look at our places and think, “This is overwhelming, I don’t know where to start.” If each person, property owner or renter will start with one small area, it may influence your neighbors to do the same.


Remember the old Bible School song:

“You’ll bring the one next to you,

and I’ll bring the one next to me,

In all kinds of weather, we’ll all work together,

And see what can be done.”

Let’s join together, everybody, to give Calhoun County a Spring cleaning!
