CMS type question with static/dynamic content (2 posts)

    Hi,

    Want to use WordPress to create a site for a group locally based on a wp theme. Which can be fully alterable via the WI and doesn't require the alteration of a separate html file to add static content. The goals are:

    1) Static content on front page - welcome etc from a wp page.
    2) Dynamic content on front page - latest post from say news category.
    3) All within a WP theme, the rest of the pages will most likely all be specific wp pages or posts.

    How can I do this? I'm talking about the sort of thing on alexking.org (tho its down right now). Any advise, pointers, example templates etc would be grand.

    Thanks

    Ben

    Found the answer to my own question here - static content with a mini loop. Great.
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page

    I'm altering this theme for my own use
    http://themes.wordpress.net/columns/2-columns/1106/transparentia/

    The static content though has two issues... one it isn't in a pane on the right like the posts in this demo are and two it makes the sidebar on the left shift down. I guess cos of point one. How can i get static content as demo'd in the codex above in a pane on the right for this theme? Please WP guru's share the wisdom :)

    Thanks
