East Point Woman Charged in Attempted Jail Break

PELHAM, GA -- When police in Camilla, GA stopped a suspicious vehicle on Sunday, they found an AK-47 assault rifle, a .45 caliber pistol, wilderness survival supplies, a baby boy and a 24-year-old woman inside.

Tamah Jada Wallace of East Point is now charged with conspiring to break her baby's father out of Pelham City Jail, where she is now behind bars.

Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office spokesman Stacey Bourbonnais
says 30-year-old Jason Joseph Clark was being held there temporarily after being sentenced to 30 years in prison.

The city jail in Pelham, which is close to Albany and Moultrie in South Georgia, recently agreed to house Gwinnett prisoners for a fee when there's not enough room at county jails.

Authorities realized Wallace and Clark were related after reviewing recorded phone conversations in which they allegedly plotted to help Clark escape.

A classic aircraft from the early days of commercial air travel re-creates those days at Briscoe Field on Thursday, September 16 until September 19. The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) brings its restored 1929 Ford Tri-Motor airliner to Gwinnett during their seven city tour.

The Ford Tri-Motor, nicknamed the “Tin Goose,” was built by the Ford Motor Company in the late 1920s. The EEA’s airplane underwent a 12-year restoration beginning in the 1970s and since the mid-1980s, has been based at the EAA museum’s historic Pioneer Airport. This facility is a faithful re-creation of an early aerodrome, including flying activities from a 2,000-foot grass airstrip.

Flights are $50 for EAA members and $60 for non-members. The flight time is approximately 15-minutes.

A secure flight-reservation system and complete information are available through EAA’s Tri-Motor tour web site at www.flytheford.org.

JOHNS CREEK, GA -- Atlanta.HighSchoolSports.net's Game of the Week will be tough to predict no matter which match-up fans pick.

The first nominee for Game of the Week is Creekview at Chattahoochee. While some teams have not played a single region game, these two teams have done nothing but battle teams within their region.
