Who's we? I didn't invite illegals but yes president's and congress's have failed to secure the southern border and allowed the flood of illegal immigrants and that's both parties. Democrats want illegals here so they can have a permanent under class to exploit and make dependent on them and government for their votes. The GOP wants illegal immigrants here so business can have…

Did you read the 6th committee report? The one that states, again, that there was no coverup, the CIA acted heroically, there was no "stand down" order, etc. The House Armed Services Committee, the Senate Armed Services Committee and the State Department's independent review board have all come to similar conclusions, even before the House launched its Benghazi panel.

Special Olympics Polar Plunge still planned for next weekend in Hannibal

9 months ago by Bryan Nichols

Event will take place on Feb. 22 at the Hannibal Marina

The fourth annual Polar Plunge is still planned for Feb. 22 at the Hannibal marina.

Special Olympics regional coordinator Tim Schuster said the Polar Plunge scheduled last weekend in Kirksville had to be rescheduled for March due to bad weather.  It was the first time a Polar Plunge was postponed in Missouri.

Schuster said the weather forecast for Hannibal’s plunge is good, it’s supposed to be in the 50s by then.

Participants will plunge in the mighty Mississippi starting at 2 p.m. Registration begins at noon.  Hannibal’s is the only Polar Plunge in Missouri to take place in the Mississippi River.  The event is hosted by Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department.

Each plunger must donate $75 to Special Olympics for the privilege of plunging. Each participant will receive a sweatshirt. Gender-specific warming tents are available for plungers.

Online registration is available at www.somo.org/plunge.

Marion County Services for Developmentally Disabled coordinates the Special Olympics teams in Hannibal. More than 15,000 athletes participate in 21 Olympic-type sports throughout the state.
