Answer
Hi Jim.

Looking at the underlying code for your website, I can see it's been created by Microsoft Word version 10.  Very likely, it was created in Word, exported to HTML format, then uploaded to a web host via FTP.

Theoretically, you could make the changes in MS Word and republish, although it's probably the world's worst way to approach web publishing.

I'd suggest finding any available 15 year old - they'll be able to show you! Seriously.   :)  Otherwise, you'll do well to contact a local web designer.

I hope this helps - Ken

Expertise

I've been developing websites for almost 20 years. If you have questions like these, I can help! Should I try this myself or hire a professional? What tools do I need? How do I sell products online? How do I make money with my website? Can I create a website without buying expensive software? How do I design a website FAST? How do I market my website? Is a BLOG a website? How do I put video on my website? What is website hosting? When will search engines find my website? OK, I've found a site I like - but now what? Can I make my website a subscription site?

Experience

I have over 20 years of practical experience with web-related issues, and some military computer training. I've worked for a computer manufacturer, and own a small technology company specializing in web-design, hosting, and internet media production. I am the webmaster of several sites, and e-newsletter editor for Rotary District 6760 which is comprised of 65 clubs throughout middle Tennessee.

Education/Credentials
I'd like to say a diploma from a revered educational facility hangs on my wall, and perhaps someday it will. In reality, everything I know has been self-taught, much of it done so in the hallowed halls of that venerable institution called "The School of Hard Knocks". (I have taken courses at a local community college, and received military computer programming training as well.)
