Taking the plunge - More than 2,000 people braved the bitter cold to take part in the 13th annual Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics on Sunday afternoon in Rehoboth Beach. Above, some “Bears” stayed in to enjoy the 32-degree ocean and, right, members of the Seaford High School Key Club huddle together before the plunge. More than $330,000 was raised during the event.
