The Custer Elementary gymnasium was a fitting scene Dec. 5 for the upcoming holiday season. The gym housed a large group of 4th grade students making birdhouses in order to raise money for an upcoming field trip to Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha.
With all the hammering and woodworking going on, it wasnâ€™t much less than shop chocked full of Santaâ€™s elves.
The birdhouse building project is a long-standing Custer Elementary School tradition that is headed by Jim Hartman, who is in his 36th year of teaching.

New Mexico Bowl: Arizona (7-5) vs. Nevada (7-5)- There are a lot about these teams that are similar. They both have the same record, powerful offenses and defenses that just plain don't show up. This should be a shootout out west. I'm going to give Rich Rodriguez and the Arizona Wildcats the edge here.
