Citizen of the Week

Friday, September 20, 2019

Mark Hughes is this week's Citizen of the Week. Hughes was nominated by Steve Beacham, who said Hughes has been maintaining a monarch butterfly hatchery on his deck. Hughes grows milkweed in numerous spots as food and egg laying sites, Beacham said. "Only 2 percent of hatched eggs become adults," Beacham said. "Mark's efforts raise the odds to 75 percent."
