Have you ever rushed home with the latest fund-raiser information form?  Remember the excitement you felt?  All you wanted was to sell enough wrapping paper or cookies to win the big prize like a bike or a free trip.  Well, Cam and Eric felt just like that when they began selling Chocolate Fudge Bars to raise money for Ride and Read at the local library.  Cam rehearsed her speech and they went door to door to sell.  However, they noticed something strange in the neighborhood: a woman dressed in a trenchcoat and glasses carried a bag of trash; a stranger occupied an empty house.  How were these events related to a local bank robbery or were they related?  Take a trip around the neighborhood with Cam to find out.  (Elizabeth C. Ashley,, Student, SLIS Program, USC, Columbia, SC)
