Capt. James Brickson is a contestant in the World Record Bell Ringing competition being held now across the United States. He’s ringing in chilly Albert Lea, Minnesota. Eric Brickson wanted to support his brother across the country, so he streamed some video of his group performing four Christmas songs in California so Capt. Brickson could listen live from his ringing location.

April 10 was the first day the public could visit Orange County Salvation Army thrift stores to view the rooms designed area interior design students who volunteered to be a part of the project. Each student team was assigned a theme and instructed to use furniture and decor from The Salvation Army’s stock of donated items. The only thing new in each ‘room’ was the paint on the walls, generously provided by Sherwin-Williams.
