    Good afternoon Sunshine Request,
    This request remains in position 3. Our IT department is experiencing server issues that are preventing me from completing email searches but they anticipate having the issue fixed this week or next. At that time I will go to the building and work on these requests, as I am unable to do them from home due to network security protocols. Thank you for your patience.
    Best,
