The "Make A Wish" organi- zation treated Kyle and his fam- ily to a trip to Disney World in January. Susan Blubaugh said, "He re- ally enjoyed that trip." American Red Cross officials reported that 90 people showed up Monday to donate blood for Kyle. Seventy-two of those donors were considered "productive donors," which means that the other 18 potential donors could not donate because not enough time had elapsed since their last donation, or because they might have had a fever or low blood count themselves. According to the Red Cross, of those 72 donors, 29 were first-time donors who showed up specifically to help Kyle. Readers who would like to help Kyle can still do so by vis- iting the American Red Cross office and donating blood. Tell the nurse that you'd like the credit to go to Kyle. Or you can contribute to an account that has been setup at Payne County Bank to help off- set medical and travel expenses for Kyle and his family.

Citing Katie Couric as her role model, Focht plans to continue her education at the University of Central Oklahoma and even- tually to pursue a career in tele- vision journalism in New York City. The Northern Thunder Pow- Wow begins with gourd danc- ing at 2 p.m. in the East Gym of Foster-Piper Fieldhouse. The Grand Entry is scheduled for 7 p.m. Admission is free. Each of the blood donors at the "Make Kyle Smile" blood drive received homemade cookies and a t-shirt following their donation. Gladys Anderson of Perkins shows off her t.shirt. -Journal photos by Cindy Sheets American Red Cross nurses from the StiUwater office were kept busy Monday afternoon with the large crowd of blood donors who showed up to support Kyle Knott. 4" " Easy salad kid-frien, by Jodie Rush Confession cookbook I just counted cookbooks on one kitchen.

My job is English coordina- tor, Which mean I have charge of the entire English program, from pre-school to junior high. The school has about 1500 students. I like my job and plan to continue this coming school year. ii In my school there is a policy that administrators must teach. I think that's a very good rule because it keeps one in touch with the classroom. Even the owners of the school teach! Cervantes school is owned and operated by two brothers: Jamie and Antonio. Jaime is an enginecr by profession and Antonio an architect. (They both teach mathematics in the school.) They have treated me very well and I'm glad to have them as my employers. Now Jamie and Antonio have a nephew who was a student in 9th grade English class. This nephew is the son of their brother. The iaephew's name is Heriberto. Well, in my English class 1 give rriy students English names, so I called Heriberto "Herbert", and ople got a kick out of that. iNow although Herbert was a nephew of the school's owners, got no privileges. In fact early in the school year, his uncle nio, my boss, told me to be strict with Herbert! : ii nd later in the year, Herbert's uncle kicked Herbert out of ~hh clas~ one day. All in all, Herbert's uncles cut him no slack. In f a~,ti he probably had it tougher. It's as if my brother Victor and I 0gibed a school and our nephew Ethan was a student. Let the record state, however, that Herbert was an excellent student in my English class!
