Salvation Army ringer sets 105-hour ring record

COLTON, Calif. (AP) -- A San Diego man has gotten a jump on ringing in the New Year after he spent a record 105 hours ringing a Salvation Army kettle bell. Salvation Army Major Marcelino ``Butch'' Soriano's reward is an estimated $2,700 that he raised for charity. He also gets to share a Salvation Army record with fellow bell-ringers James Brickson of Albert Lea, Minn., and Andre Thompson of Tyler, Texas, who matched his effort hour-for-hour. Soriano tells UT San Diego he was a little tired after putting down his bell in front of a Colton, California Wal-Mart on Saturday evening. He had originally planned to go until midnight, but agreed with the others to stop at 6 p.m. so they could share the record. The old mark, 80 hours, was set last year.
