Couple ways to do this, best would be to set the offset in the query.

DataObject::get("NewsPage", "ParentID = $news->ID", "Date DESC", "", "1,$num");

If you want to don't want to modify that query then you could skip the first in the template as well

<% control LatestNews %>
<% if First %>
<% else %>
 DO STUFF. Will skip the first one
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>
