Those attending the recital could easily sense that Aleida and her dad make a good team. whether he is accompanying a flute solo or a vocal solo. Tasha Nelson, a friend and fellow flautist at WWG, and Aleida did numerous flute duets during their mid- dle school and high school years. ]'hey preformed :'Duetto IV" from ler Livre de Duos by Francois Devienne for the recital. Bryan Runck, a friend from RRC. performed Suite for Flute and .Jazz Piano Trio with Aleida on her flute and her dad at the piano. The challenge of this piece is balancing the "classic" flute with the "jazz" of the other parts, and the players more than adequately met the challenge. "That was fun," said Meida, after singing "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy" from Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific. She also presented "The Ragman's Call" by Walter Wangerin, Jr., which she edited for speech compo- sition. Aleida is fortunate to have received instruction from a number of talented people, including WWG teachers, Constance Knott and Thomas and Kathy Vondracek, and Laurel Otto, her mentor teacher in the Magnet Arts program. Next fall Aleida will be a music major at South Dakota State University, Brookings. She already knows some of the profes- sors and music students at SDSU from attending music camp there.

"More than 500,000 jobs have been created in the past two months," Gutknecht said. "This, along with shrinking deficits, illus- trates that the tax cuts we passed are working. The American economy is strong and resilient. Now, just as the economy is finally gain- ing steam, is not the time to raise taxes on American families. The 2001 Jobs and Growth tax relief package created a new 10-percent tax bracket. The lowest tax rate from 1986 to 2000 was 15 percent. H.R. 4275 main- tains the size of the 10-per- cent bracket at $7,000 for singles and $14,000 for mar- ried couples. These amounts are adjusted for inflation. "The tax relief measures we have passed over the past few weeks underscore the complexity and, often, unfairness of our tax code. The time to scrap the tax code and replace it with a national consumption tax is well past due," Gutknecht concluded.
