A nice day on the ice

Brooks LaRue, front, son of Jenny LaRue, shoots off a puck at one of the skating rinks at Sliding Hill Skate Park in New Prague on Wednesday, Dec. 28. In the background is his cousin Mason Herbeck, son of Jake Herbeck. The two families from the communities of Elko and Webster were enjoying a day on the ice. New Prague’s three skating rinks are open for use. Two rinks are at Sliding Hill Skate Park, along Columbus Avenue N, and one is at Settlers Park, at the intersection of 9th Street SE and 12th Avenue SE. (Patrick Fisher Photo)
