Basically, I don't want the website to look like a blog, even though the news and correspondence sections clearly are. So, I think that I need to put two separate versions of "the loop" into my news and correspondence pages. I don't know if this is possible yet. Obviously the news page should only display posts from the news category and the correspondence page should only display correspondence posts.
I know this seems weird, but I am just trying to harness the the power of blogposting in order to make a site that is easy to update (as it is for my boss, who is not into coding and whatnot).
