Joomla Article Appering as white page

I recently became administrator for several sites. I did not build these. One of these we will be making changes to but I noticed while reviewing content that one article (climate, under the visit deming tab) leads to a blank page.

 I checked the article to ensure it has content. It does.

It has a flash slideshow (idk why flash but not my isssue), I removed that from the article in case it was having a weird interaction. still no good.

I clicked preview and the content shows up fine in the pop up.

I double checked the menu link to ensure that it had the right page, it does

I created a new article with a new menu link and still no good.

the site is cityofdeming.org

I did not build this site, and my background is mostly wordpress.

Lets get this figured out and you win the internet and points!

check the access rights to the article.
open up the article and underneath the title there are options.

1) maybe the menu is only displaying articles from a category "climate" or stomaching
- so check the type of menu "climate"

2) check the access option is set to "public"

save the changes
if you know how to empty the cache , empty it.
if not and you have caching enabled the changes take a while to filter through to the live site.

stomaching - "something"

sorry more detail - go to the menu manger and check what type of menu it is that points to climate. if its a single article then check the access right of the menu pointer and the article itself
if tis a category then check the category ofthe climate article

I have cleared the cache previously, no luck, I also checked to ensure everything was public. It was. It turns out that the theme does not like reading {something} in brackets. as soon as i deleted that page loaded up fine.
