Corruption, Fraud and Cover Up in Fulton County?

ATLANTA -- Fulton County employee Nicola Hosier had a perplexed look on her face when 11Alive's Center for Investigative Action team knocked on her door in Fayetteville.  We were there because she's accused of diverting more than $150,000 of county taxpayer money to her own events planning business. 

"Who are you?" she asked. When we told her why we were there, she closed the door.

What led us to her door were allegations contained in more than 1,000 pages of documents pointing fingers at several county employees accusing them of theft, fraud, corruption and even using perceived positions of power to illicit sexual favors.

Game of the Week Nominees: Semifinals

SNELLVILLE, GA -- The nominations for Game of the Week include a dynamic offense vs. a stout defense, two rematches from earlier in the season, and a battle of two seriously long win streaks. Which game won this week's honors?

With 40 percent of the online vote, Collins Hill at Brookwood is 11Alive and Atlanta.HighSchoolSports.net's Game of the Week. The two 5A teams played earlier in the season, but the stakes and circumstances were much different then.

It was both teams' second game of the season. The Broncos were 1-0 and coming off of a 27-10 win over Walton in the Corky Kell Classic. Collins Hill was 1-0 and coming off of a 13-9 win over Roswell.

Brookwood won 45-38 in double overtime and went on to win 10 of their next 11 games. Collins Hill lost their next two games, but turned a 1-3 record into 10-3.

Holyfield to Fight Again

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield has been lined up to fight Denmark's Brian Nielsen on March 4.

Sauerland Promotion said in a statement Wednesday that Holyfield "knows he faces an experienced boxer." The Atlanta-based Holyfield is 48 years old, Nielsen 45.

Holyfield, who held the heavyweight title four times, knocked out Francois Botha last April after losses to Nikolay Valuev and Sultan Ibragimov. He has a career record of 43-10-2, with 28 knockouts.

One of Holyfield's most memorable fights came against Mike Tyson in 1997, when Tyson was disqualified after biting off part of Holyfield's right ear.

Further details of the bout are expected to be released Thursday.

What are the Odds of Your Team Winning it All?

ATLANTA -- There are 20 teams that still have a shot at a state championship, but some teams are more likely to come away with a title than others. Ever wonder what the odds of your team winning it all would be? Thanks to the Massey Ratings, you don't have to wonder anymore.
