Donald Rheem Elementary School fourth-grader Olivia Hlavac desperately wanted to win a jump rope contest at the May 8 Rheem Spring Picnic, but she carried a heavy burden with her to the competition - namely, a large black cast that covered the foot she broke on April 15. "She was so determined to win, she jumped on one foot for about five minutes," said her sister, Lauren. (Five minutes is a long time for someone who has two healthy jumping legs.) Olivia won the competition and was awarded a trophy, a bag full of candy, and Mexican jumping beans. J. Wake
