Issue solved. Problems was custom Div markup in the article itself that i didn't realize was there. Removed that and let Joomla handle the layout of content and all is working fine.
I've started with the Desire Quick start package and I'm re-configuring it with my own content.
On the About Us page, I've replaced the content of the About us article, but the layout for that page is apparently two columns, with another article or module wtih an image in the right column. I don't know where to go to edit the article or module that holds that demo image on the right side of the About Us page in the demo. Just need some insight on where to go to change that. I can't seem to tell using page inspector and I can't find a module assigned to that menu item.
