Recap of soon-to-be national news from our neighbors in Annapolis Junction: A probably well-meaning Salvation Army volunteer calls his boss to find out the policy on giving change for a donation. The boss doesn’t answer, so the volunteer breaks his own five dollar bill and gets the donation. Then the boss calls back and scolds him for violating policy. The volunteer hasn’t been seen since – and neither has his bucket of Christmas cheer ($300 to $500 worth). I’m thinking both of these characters need a good snow ball fight. And I hope the boss gets some ice down her sweater. But the lump of coal really goes to the AP for this list sentence: He also allegedly kept the Salvation Army bell and apron.
