Jack Hines, local longtime auctioneer, had a large plaque presented to him at the Washington County (Minn.) Livestock Auction, which was held at their annual fair in Lake Elmo, Minn., recently commemorating 40 years of donating his services. Also, a huge cake with the inscription “Thanks Jack for 40 years” was part of the lunch served to all present in his honor. Hines started the Pierce County Livestock 4-H Auction and FFA Auction 38 years ago, which benefit many young people toward furthering their education.

They can change color from gray to green with dark mottling, to mostly green on the background color of their habitat.
