Hi GregB, I made the site live now. Its at www.phoenixhealthinstitute.com
I read your above comment and stretched my page out, double clicked the masthead area to open the design options... and it will not allow me to change the background color to blue... so i didn't pursue your further instructions.
But, somewhere along the way from yesterday to now, I made the background transparent in that larger version.
I still haven't solved the problem, but having a transparent background at least isn't that offensive.
