Attached are two screenshots of a page that I built (http://www.mms-nashville.com/index.php). This first one represents what I intend the site to look like regardless of the size of the browser:

preferred
Here's what the same page looks like in a smaller browser:

wretched
What do I need to change in my CSS so the smaller browser scenario doesn't have that hideous white space going on on the left hand side?

My stylesheet is at http://www.mms-nashville.com/stylesheet.css

Thanks!

the margin left is incorrect - it should be 50% of 1620px (the image you are using) so it should be -810px not -553px

so it should be:

@media screen and (max-width: 1620px) { /* Specific to this particular image */
  img.bg {
    left: 50%;
    margin-left: -810px;   /* 50% */
  }
}
