Icy Dip Raises Thousands

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) -- About 550 people have braved the icy water of Clear Lake in northern Iowa for two good causes.
   The Polar Bear Club dip on Sunday raised around $21,000 that will be divided between Toys for Tots and Make-A-Wish.
   Lori Schade says that "if it wasn't for the kids I'd just write a check out."
   Newcomer John Berding was expecting the experience to be worse, considering the weather. The wind chill Sunday afternoon was around zero.
   Berding says "it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The worst part is getting out."
