Odd Polar Bear Plunger
In this photo taken Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012, Garth Gaskey, of Brookfield, emerges after taking a cold swim in Lake Michigan during the annual New Year's Day Polar Dip at Bradford Beach, Wis. Gaskey, the Milwaukee Polar Bear Club president who made his 60th plunge into Lake Michigan says it may not have been his last, even though he previously said he was quitting because of his age, the four stents in his heart and his daughter was unhappy about it.
