Got an Urbaniac story, comic strip or anything else newsworthy or funny?
Send it our way!
Welcome to another issue of the Chronicles. This time around we're full of contests and they all sound pretty challenging, but also fun! So go forth and conquer and win lots of prizes!
One person who will get a big surprise in this issue is Love_Child. I know for a fact that she's clueless. About this one thing! Don't kill me, Love.
And what's going on with the ghosts on the Just B. Causeway? A report has come in, though I don't know how helpful it's going to be. In the meantime, here are some letters the Chronicles has received:
"I've been seeing lights up there that aren't headlights. Is someone going to tell us what's going on or is the government covering this up? We deserve to know the truth. It's aliens, right? There's no such thing as ghosts." - Conspiracy Theorist
"I thought some fancy investigator was going to solve the mystery of the bridge. When will it happen? Not using the Just B Causeway is adding an hour to my commute." - A Concerned Citizen
"FOOLS! YOU WILL NEVER KATCH THE GHOSTS OF THE JUST B KAUSEWAY BEKAUSE THEY ARE VILLAINOUS! VILLAINS RULE!" - HK
I can talk to ghosts and let me tell you that there are tons of mad ghosts on the Just B. Causeway. They are planning something really big, so if you want to stop them, every citizen in Urbanville should send me 5 million urbos to 167 4th Ave., Apt 2C. - Urb Exorcist

Urbanville Ghosts; Fact or Hoax?
The Just B Causeway has been getting a lot of coverage lately and as you might imagine, the citizens of Urbanville have been coming to me with their concerns. Is the bridge really haunted? Was it a hoax started by Dark_Oracle? Is Sherlock Holmes just using the hysteria to further his career? Is it safe to use the bridge? What is being done?
Well to get answers, I went first to the Love Oracle Cafe where Dark_Oracle is a barista. Magic_Shodow, our chef, told me that she had taken the night off, but we had a temp worker to cover. That's when I noticed samatha123 next to a cappuccino machine that could only be described as... imploded. Needless to say, I left quickly.
The next stop was Sherlock Holmes', the self-proclaimed greatest detective of all time. The door was locked and no one was answering. The tattoo artist in the next building told me that he hadn't seen Sherlock for a week.
I started thinking that there may be something to this ghost story. Back at my crib, I packed some overnight gear, grabbed Paolo, my B. Wereboy, and headed for the bridge.
We arrived shortly after midnight and there were quite a few moving lights along the bridge. As we got closer, we saw that they were flashlights and lanterns. Irene and Ranmaru, two of Dragus_Loader's sidekicks ran past. Mandude seemed to be searching for something. There were a few campsites including one where I ran into Dark_Oracle.
"Oracle, did you make all this up so you could have camp-parties on the bridge every night? Tell me the truth, you party girl." I said.
"Would I do that?" Oracle blinked her big innocent eyes and I was convinced that she'd never invent a haunting just to satisfy her party cravings.
I moved on until I found myself blinded by fog. The weather forecast hadn't called for fog and I wished I'd brought a thicker jacket because there was a definite chill to the air. That's when I noticed I'd gotten seperated from Paolo. After shouting his name a few times and getting no answer, I figured I'd better search the area.
That's when I was struck by an ear-splitting shriek followed by eerie moaning. I could see shadows moving in the fog, but lunging forward, I couldn't get close to any of them. I fought the urge to flee only because I couldn't leave without Paolo. However, he could still be at that last campsite where they were roasting marshmallows. He really can't resist marshmallows. He could be back there having a great old time, stuffing his face while I was being attacked by ghosts and worried sick about him. How dare!
Just as anger won out over fear, a voice said, "Admission is 5000 urbos." A hand materialized in front of me and I saw it was connected to a hooded figure.
"Are you kidding me?" I asked, though I suspected the answer.
"I'm trying to run a business here, it's not my fault you couldn't see the sign."
"What sign? Who are you? Buttman? TheThing? ZOOMER?" I was trying to think of who would set up a Haunted Bridge on the haunted bridge to make a buck.
"THAT sign, right there. That... Oh, we might have overdid it on the fog. Yo guys, turn it to a lower setting." The voice got faint as the figure strode away. I never did get to ID him. I also didn't pay the admission fee, which is just as well. I couldn't stay to play, I was getting to the bottom of things.
By this time, I was getting really sleepy. I thought I heard Sherlock's voice calling "Hello!" Or maybe it was "Help, I'm trapped!" I'm not sure. Paolo suddenly popped up by my side riding on a sugar high.
"Have you been eating marshmallows?" I asked him suspiciously.
"No, why, have you? Do you have marshmallows? Not sharing? Where are they? Lemme see!" Paolo demanded.
"No I don't have any. And now I'm tired and cold and just want to go home." I told him. At that point we headed home because Love is cranky when she's tired.
So citizens of Urbanville, I apologize for not getting to the bottom of things this time around. And to that entrepreneur, if you're reading this, you'd better have a permit!
