My apologies for the delay in getting back to you - had an election to run.

I tried the link below and was able to open, by allowing it to download,
which takes a few extra minutes. We only have the link below.

You might want to copy and paste it in and not just hit the link. When I
copied and paste it the web address line it worked. Not sure why it is not
working for you.

Hope this works this time....let me know.
