There won't be any "bah humbug" at Bakersfield's Valley Plaza Mall this Christmas season. The shopping center banned the traditional Salvation Army kettles and bell ringers last year because the mall doesn't allow any kind of solicitation for funds.

Thieves didn't exactly steal Christmas on Tuesday, just a familiar symbol of it. Seven new bell-ringer jackets disappeared from the Salvation Army office in Oxnard within minutes of being delivered to a crowded lobby at 11 a.m. The annual countywide red-kettle drive--which nets more than $130,000 from Ventura County residents and helps about 1,350 families--will begin next week.
