Theater Performance to Benefit Drama Workshops for Fulton Students

ROSWELL, GA -- During the 2010-2011 school year, the Fulton County School System's Teaching Museum North (793 Mimosa Boulevard, Roswell, 30075) is offering Literacy through Drama workshops to participating third grade classes.

The drama workshops let students explore the language of text and create their own dialogue, as well as bring that dialogue to life. The workshops are designed to directly support state curriculum standards for English/language arts and are an excellent opportunity to engage students in writing.

The initiative was created in partnership with the Georgia Ensemble Theater and the school system's English/language arts department.

Undercover Investigation Catches Concert Ticket Counterfeiter

Our Center for Investigative Action puts the brakes on a problem that's been plaguing the Atlanta area. Counterfeit tickets.

We got involved because you asked for help. Over the summer we've received numerous complaints on our tip line from viewers who bought counterfeit tickets, for everything, from Six Flags Amusement Park, to all kinds of concerts.

That's why we launched an undercover investigation that began months ago.

It's not an easy case to crack, because there are many culprits counterfeiting tickets and they tend to move around and change phone numbers. In order to get to the problem we had to start small. That's why we focused our attention on one man, Jackson Sneed.

The three men stormed into the Azteca Grocery Store on Alpharetta Street in Roswell on January 26, 2008. The robbery was captured on store surveillance cameras. Douglas shot Alvarado in the chest when she tried to get one of her employees to hit the "panic" button.
