Some Rock County residents may have made a deadly bet about beating the heat this summer.

Voluntary Action Center Director Lynnette Newton says, after last summer's cool weather, many low-income elderly and disabled persons with heat related medical problems, may have waited to look for an air conditioner. She says the need is growing faster than her organization can supply relief.

Her goal is to keep as many people as possible out of the hospital.
