Site update

I'm working with my Web site manager, Madeira James, on a new look for the Web site. I'm really excited about the design she's come up with, and right now I'm buried in updating the content. The schedule has some additions, so be sure to check that page if you look at the current version of the site.

I have lots to tell you, but the Web site revision must come first...

Thanks for your patience!
