The outdoor tennis courts at Tomahawk Park have received a face lift - thanks in part to a generous donation from a local citizen.
At a council meeting in May in which discussion ensued on the scope of the project to refurbish the tennis courts, Dr. Lance Jones gave more than his two cents worth on the project - in fact, he felt so strongly about the importance of preserving the three outdoor courts that he donated $5,000 of his own money to the city to do it.
