Go to the bottom of page one under the table and hold down the delete button until it goes away... if you have a bunch of empty characters there it will push it to the next page

Okay nevermind change your margins and it will disappear :) I changed them to narrow after I saw you posted the file and the second page disappeared.

Sometimes this happens to me with tables because they go to or near the end of the page. In this case, I go to the top of the next page (or the end of the document) and use the backspace key to delete the page break.
