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.

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 />
