Local adventurer, Miles Togo, announced today he will attempt to fly over a rainbow this Spring. Channel 1 News learned he has wanted to do this since  hearing Judy Garland sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in "The Wizard of Oz".
Togo gained notoriety last year when, while attempting to find a needle in a haystack at the McDonald farm, he uncovered a pound of marijuana hidden in the hay. As a result, old McDonald's son, was carted off to jail.
Miles Togo and "Rainbow Rider"
Togo has now begun twenty four hour contact with the weather bureau in order to be alerted of any thunder storms, which would hopefully spawn a rainbow. "I'm ready to go!" he said.  His biggest fear right now is a very rare night rainbow.  He explained to Channel 1 News, "Even though scientist say night rainbows aren't possible, I'm still not sure. Just because we can't see them, doesn't mean they're not there."  Togo would much rather fly over a rainbow during the daylight hours.  He has purchased an army surplus SR12 rocket, which he has dubbed the "Rainbow Rider".  "It has enough power to pull me up and over a rainbow and I'm excited."  When asked why he wanted to do this, he could only grin.  "Just be sure the Ripley Brothers are there with a camera."  Experts rate his chances at slim to none, to which Togo only smirks.  Channel 1 News will be there with our eyes to the skys.
