I understand you 😀
But the template doesn’t.
That position where the news are, is called innertop, and it’s divided into 2 columns.
And the news is the second column, floated left.
I could fix it, by setting innertop to 1 column, and using additional CSS to make the 50% width for those 2 modules, but that would break the site in responsive mode (for mobiles).
The wonderful world of divs and css 😀
