Technically, TeXShop doesn't find any package (*.sty file), but rather the TeX engine (tex, pdftex, xetex, luatex) ---or, more strictly speaking, I think that's the job of the Kpathsea collection of tools. TeXShop is a front-end to TeX. There are other front-ends, and you can even use your Terminal.

There are two directories where you can add your personal .sty files:



~/Library/texmf/tex/latex (where ~/Library is your personal Library, inside your Home).

If you use the former, you have to run `` sudo texhash '' in your Terminal; if you use the latter, you don't have to do anything else ---TeX will find it.

If you're using MacTeX 2010 distribution, see

/Applications/TeX/What Is Installed.pdf, page 2.

As Ross said, you better use the commands \clearpage or \cleardoublepage; see, for example,

/usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist/doc/latex/lshort-english/lshort.pdf (p. 48)
