If it's a warm, sunny afternoon, the Hi-Line Hop may not be a bad experience but if it's 19-degrees like it was last year, prepare to be chilled.  The local arm of the Law Enforcement Torch run will once again be sponsoring the event and it's scheduled to take place on Sat. Nov. 10th at 1:00 PM in the Cut Bank City Park.

The event is held to support Montana Special Olympics and hats off (and clothes) to those who are willing to take the plunge.   I already know a couple of brave souls who are committed to participating.  Pru Lybeck and Logan will be plunging or as she put it, "FREEZIN' For a reason," You can support the Lybeck's by donating on line at


I also know that Toole County Sheriff Donna Whitt will take the plunge and you can donate to her cause by calling the Sheriff's office.  Anyone who wants to get going on rounding up pledges can pick up a pledge sheet here at KSEN or The Border Patrol office in Shelby.   You can also get a pledge sheet online at www.somt.org/plunge.

By the way there's some great prizes for participants, depending on how much you raise.  $100.00 gets you a long sleeve T-shirt.   If you can reach $1500.00 you'll get a shirt and Ipod shuffle.    For $2500.00, a shirt and an Ipod nano.   Happy hopping and stay warm!
