the dropdowns are not showing....

what I did is created the element as an include page so I only have to change in one spot.

Works fine by itself http://www.novawestlax.com/includes/inc_header_newx.asp 

but not as part of the page http://www.novawestlax.com/index_new.asp

Which browser are you testing in? It seems to work under Opera:

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

I don't have IE9 installed anywhere, so I cannot confirm the behavior. I do have IE8, though, and I do see that the menu doesn't work quite correctly. One thing though:  Your home page appears to have a slightly different menu (in terms of CSS), but it does work. Why did you change the menu style between pages? Why not carry over the menu from the home page?
