Mendenhall's TD in OT leads Steelers over Falcons

Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Rashard Mendenhall broke off a 50-yard game-
winning touchdown run on the Steelers' first play of overtime as Pittsburgh
persevered for a 15-9 win over Atlanta in a defensive battle at Heinz Field.

After the Falcons faltered on the first possession of OT, Michael Koenen's
poor 36-yard punt from the 14-yard-line gave the Steelers prime field

Mendenhall wasted little time in making it count, bursting through a hole off
right tackle sealed off by a textbook block from tight end David Johnson on
his way to the end zone.

Mendenhall ended with 120 yards on 22 carries while Hines Ward came up huge
for Dennis Dixon with six catches for 108 yards.

100 Cobb Middle and High School Students Needed as Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Delegates

Atlanta, GA-- 100 Youth Delegates Representing Middle and High Schools or Community Youth Groups in Cobb County are wanted to become delegates for the Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Youth Council.

What is the Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Youth Council?

It’s a movement, a youth-led movement. Never before has an issue required the guts and spirit of youth to move it forward; to shake the cages of communities everywhere to make changes, to rattle adults out of complacency, and to rub the sleep out of politician’s eyes and get them to wake up to the problem of underage and youth binge drinking that affects thousands of youth everyday. The Take It Back Movement is about youth power, youth influence, youth brains--multiplied! It’s about imagining the future different, telling the truth, using data to back the story, refusing censorship, staying at the edge, creating action, and generating results.

'Secure Communities' Rolls Out in Cobb, Fulton Counties

MARIETTA, GA -- A new federal program is going into effect in Cobb and Fulton Counties.  The program screens the fingerprints of people who are arrested against a national database, in an effort to verify their immigration status.  It's drawing praise and criticism.
