Fox listener Danny Richter has nominated me for the Landon plunge. I have put some serious thought into this and think that we can do something to help out our local communities. So if you want to see me take the plunge you need to pony up! I want to raise at least $1500. All proceeds will be donated to Crime Stoppers of North Central Iowa. To pledge just give us a call on our business line at 641-421-7744.
