Funny Jokes!

A priest and pastor from the local parishes are standing by the side of the road holding up a sign that reads, "The End is Near! Turn yourself around now before it's too late!" They planned to hold up the sign to each passing car.
"Leave us alone you religious nuts!" yelled the first driver as he sped by. From around the curve they heard screeching tires and a big splash.
"Do you think," said one clergy to the other, "we should just put up a sign that says 'Bridge Out' instead?"

The Futures of Mansfield Lies Ahead, As Well As Another Junior Media Playday PDF Print E-mail

Mansfield's eighth-annual pro tournament, the Futures of Mansfield $15K, is right around the corner, starting with two back-to-back wildcard events.

Avery, 54, plays because, among other reasons, she loves getting exercise and making friends: "You meet lots of people--most of them very nice," she says. That sums it up for a lot of us tennis players.

Ever since we started running Junior and Adult Closeups here at, we have met one great candidate after another for each (feel free to suggest someone, including yourself). The young man we are featuring in this blog is new to my radar and not a moment too soon.

Duncanville's own Cody Stewart has learned that he is among the 10 annual winners of the USTA/NJTL (National Junior Tennis & Learning network) Arthur Ashe Essay Contest, so he and his mother are getting ready for their big trip to New York City to accept the award. What's more, this will be their second such trip, because Stewart, 18, also won in 2010.
