My sidebar is not showing up on my blog pages. It shows up on every other page, but not the blog ones.

My code is below:
Template Name: Blog
get_header(); include('lsidebar.php'); ?>

<!-- BEGIN content -->
<div id="content">

	<!-- begin latest posts -->
	<div class="box">
		<div style="margin-top: -20px;"><h2>BLOG</h2></div>

	<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
	<ul class="homelist2">
query_posts('cat=3'); while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
		<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" class="title"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
		<p><?php echo dp_clean($post->post_content, 400); ?>		<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">>>MORE</a>
	<div style="margin-left: -20px; padding-top: 15px; padding-bottom: 15px;"><img src="/images/white_divider.gif" alt="" /></div>

	<?php endwhile; ?>
	<p class="postnav">
		<?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries'); ?> &nbsp; 
		<?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;'); ?>
	<?php endif; ?>
	<!-- end latest posts -->

<!-- END content -->

<?php get_footer(); ?>
