The ice bucket challenge is on its way to Albemarle. The challenge is to be doused with ice water or write a check to support the fight against ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Author Stephen King is among the latest celebrities to take a cold shower. He then nominated fellow author and Albemarle County resident John Grisham (pictured). No word on when or if Grisham will take the plunge.
