Joes Lado-Andrea (left), Izjeilah Love and other Lefler Middle School students cross-country ski on Friday. PE teacher Jeff Pappas wanted to give his students the chance to try skiing in the snow that has covered the ground for weeks this winter. "I was just thinking, with all this snow, I'm tired of being inside," Pappas said. "Let's go outside." The school district rented the skis for the week from the UNL Outdoor Adventures Center.
