Well, actually, this is more about the new capability of listing Recent Events / Upcoming Events / Events of Interest, / and News Items on the home page. The Custom Module "Latest News" was selected to be a linear listing of stuff that members and other interested viewers should be aware of. Kind of like the "Items of Interest" on the old site.
In any case, the section of the web site below the rotating banner will be the layman's version of the information presented in detail here in the webmaster's blog. The first 2 items are the Bishop Blast and the Convention.
Speaking of the Convention: WOW, the 2011 Convention was a complete absolute record-shattering tradition-breaking marvel, with the boring speeches suppressed. Instead it was filled with informational workshops, impacting audio/visuals, and a LIVE ULTRASOUND demo! Totally different, and our State Deputy has promised an even more impressive 2012 convention! Hard to imagine, but it would be just awesome if he pulls it off. In case you don't get the point here, ... you NEED to get on the Delegate List for the 2012 Convention!!!
