Not letting a little rain dampen their spirits, Mary Stephens (left) and Marianna Peragallo, both of Madison, enjoy a wild ride aboard the Tornado on Wednesday at opening night of the Mississippi State Fair in Jackson.
Despite the sun glaring overhead, Ed Carstens of Madison is able to juggle seven beanbags Saturday morning at the Dr. Hugh G. Ward Children's Playground at Parham Bridges Park on Ridgewood Road in Jackson. Members of the Jackson Area Jugglers meet every Saturday at the park to practice from 10 a.m. to noon.
Garrett Nichols, 7, concentrates on a pitch from his Dad Scott Nichols as the pair play ball outside their house in Richland Monday afternoon. In June, Scott and Garrett will travel to Birmingham, Ala. where Garrett will receive one of his father's kidney's in a transplant operation.
