Hungry for Health 4 continued from page 4 away from you. If you say that you are so busy, I am too busy, that you feel that nothing makes you happy anymore, or that you just need to get away, those are red flags. Stop, concentrate, and embrace the person, place, or thing in front of you. Let go of all the other stuff of to- morrow, the weekend, the month. If done properly you may be surprised how much joy there is in your life from work, home, and the people around you.

Steen, a 1987 graduate of Russell-Tyler High School, is currently serving as Curriculum Specialist at Lincoln Public Schools in Lincoln, Nebraska. The NETA Board of Di- rectors is composed of the officers and twelve directors elected by the membership as voting members. The members of the Board of Directors are elected to three-year terms with four members being elected each year. The Board of Directors seat is strictly a volunteer position. Each member is to be affiliated with a non- profit educational orga- nization. NETA is a grass- roots organization open to everyone interested in sharing information about using technology in the educational process. NETA has approximately 2,500 members representing a four-state region. NETA Executive Director Julie Moore said her orga- nization helps introduce technology to the educa- tional process. "NETA exists for the pur- pose of providing leader- ship and promoting the ap- plication of technology to Submitted photo Kent Steen the educational process," Moore explained. "Its span of interest includes all lev- els and aspects of educa- tion." Steen is the son of Bob Steen of Eagan and Rietz Hannemann of Tyler.

The team is coached by Katelyne Alderson. Superintendent 4 continued from page 1 but came up empty. "This is run by a fellow by the name of Ray Far- well," Orcutt said. "Ray was a superintendent over in Montgomery-Lonsdale. When Ray retired he start- ed this service where he got a stable of retired su- perintendents and retired principals and started pro- viding administrators to schools who were looking. I spoke to Ray last week and Ray indicated to me that he had no one in this area that would be avail- able right now." One final option, Orcutt said, would be to "shake some trees," but so far that has also yielded little. "I've got a lot of contacts in the state" he said. "I've exhausted those contacts. A lot of times when a su- perintendent retires they want to stay retired. Some of them are kind of burned out. Sometimes it takes convincing:' Hansen suggested that Orcutt continue to make contacts and that the Ad- ministrative Committee meet with any prospects that turn up. Orcutt indi- cated he would be willing to continue the search. If the search continues to come up empty, the board will revisit the process at the June meeting. Poster winner 4 continued from page 1 fore pulling down the big cash prize. "Every school has a first, second and third place winner, and then they take all the first place posters and send to the state," E1- ena said. The young artist said she has learned much of what she knows about wa- ter conservation at home. "If I take too long my parents say 'get out of the shower,'" Elena revealed. "I take long showers some- times." When asked what she was going to do with all the cash winnings, she had an answer immediately-- "I do not know." She will be working through that decision in the days to come, but probably won't be able to spend too much time thinking about it in the shower. At least not if her parents have anything to say about it.
