Funky IE CSS Link Bug!

Hi Experts,

I am having a weird thing on a web page that only happens in IE- shocking right?  I shouldn't say it is a bug because it might be something I am doing wrong.  In this case it would take a long time to describe the whole scenario, so I think it better to send a link to the page in question:

The image at the top of the right column has a hyperlink associated with it.  But if you drag your mouse over it, notice how the link is "blocked" for a section of the photo!  And it's not just the photo- on the same horizontal line to the left the link for "Green Island Interactive" is partially obscured as well!  Wow- maybe a silly mistake on my part but still bizarre activity and only in IE.

I tried a lot of different things and could not narrow it down to anything other than that location on the page. It's as if there is a mysterious rectangular box masking links.  I am thinking this is some IE quirk that someone has seen before and might be able to point me in the right direction.
