The Salvation Army has to be feeling that, just for a moment, there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As Major Ben Stillwell was going through the latest Red Kettle proceeds from the Wal-Mart location, what did his eyes spy? A one-ounce troy gold bar!

As far as the work of the coin, let’s just say it’s over one thousand dollars. The Salvation Army has raised 32-thousand dollars this far in its Kettle campaign…that’s 21 percent of the goal of $145,500.
