ALBANY, GA (WALB) – All the choices you make each day, may make you feel like you're wandering through a maze. The choices you make today will impact your future. That's why 7th Graders from Dougherty County schools were led through the Get a life teen maze at Albany State Wednesday.

It's an interactive life simulation where students are shown the positive and negative consequences of their behavior and life choices. Some can lead to STDs, some to death as this casket represents, but good decisions can help them cross the stage at graduation and be rewarded. We found one group of students in a jail cell.

"I used a fake ID to buy alcohol for the party so I got sent to jail," said Dajah Washington of her experience.

Jazmine Mace said, "I think it's good to make the right decisions now, because what you make now in your teen life will always follow you."

Organizer Eddie McBride said, "Once you make the decisions here, it's in a safe atmosphere, but just like in real life, if you make a decision, you can't undo the decisions you made in real life."

The teen maze was coordinated by Phoebe's Network of Trust and community partners.

Lindsey Vonn crashes in World Cup giant slalom, Tina Maze takes it

Click here to read the source article

Lindsey Vonn is still in the overall World Cup lead, however her lead over Maria Riesch was cut today, 1571 to 1406. Lindsey crashed out of the giant slalom course early on, and may have injured her knee. She was able to ski down the rest of the course, but was clearly favoring it. We'll let you know her status when we have more info.

Maria Riesch had a strong race, ending up third on the podium, her second career podium in this discipline. Tina Maze took the vibes from her strong Olympic performances (two silver medals) into this race and took the top spot. This is her first win of the season. Coming in a close second was Germany's Kathrin Hoelzl.

"It was really close, I knew that already," Maze said after the race. "The course is really flat. It's easy to ski, you just had to attack. It's always close, the last races were so close. [Winning an Olympic medal] was my goal," Maze continued. "But this year I still [hadn't] won a race, so it's great to end the season like this. It couldn't be better."

Hoelzl won the GS overall (seen kissing the globe in the picture) - the first of her career - with 471 points, followed by Kathrin Zettel (ninth Thursday) with 394 points and Maze with 372.

Julia Mancuso didn't have enough overall or giant slalom points to compete today. She and Lindsey Vonn tied for 28th in the giant slalom standings, and they will both race in tomorrow's Super G (granted Lindsey didn't hurt her knee).
