Glad to hear it worked rkblack! I also added your suggestion, but as -15px and now I have used up a bit more of that space as well! Together looks like we both solved that part of the problem! :) Thanks.
Now I just need to figure out:
1: How to remove "Featured" from the sticky post on the home page.
2: Those darned table issues! Just cant seem to figure this one out and it really messes up the posts. They look fine in the editor and even trying to create them without a table, just an image/text, everything past the first line gets pushed below a head-shot!
3: White space between nav-bar and POST titles
