Neighborhood News

We here at the Cactus Blog believe it is part of our mission to provide far-flung readers with local news wherever it may occur. Today, the local news happens to be in <a href=";entry_id=1580" title="" onmouseover="window.status=’′;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Tucson</a>, but it could be in your hometown next, you know.<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">City Council honors desert-plant lover</span><br />
Dick Wiedhopf was about 10 years old and riding a bike near his Los Angeles home when he came across a discarded prickly pear cactus pad near some garbage cans.<br />
He carefully picked it up, took it home and planted it. Wiedhopf, now 67, has been salvaging and planting desert plants ever since. </span><br /></div><br />Very nice human interest story. Practically brings a lump in your throat.<br /><br />
