Thanks for pointing that out!
I didn't realize I was using that module. That mean't I didn't have to do the CSS, I simply went to the advanced parameters tab inside the module and changed the Module Style from "none" to "Inherited". I'm a happy camper!
I have one more question now that I realize I'm in that module. Is there a way to make the newsflash module inherit the templates read more link style? Right now the read more link is just a link... it'd be nice for it to be a button like the template's articles are. I guess I could just scrap the news module and publish the articles to the front page....
