Block to display from two tables
The bigger picture is to make a table that holds presets about Road Conditions and another to hold work reporting status(like closed, delayed, etc). Then a person could go in to a 'management page' with the block to select the items to display on the front page.
Think in terms of a school in a snowy area wanting to tell the community that the school is closed/delayed and/or to tell driving students a level of caution(like green/yellow/red).
I have the basic idea on paper. But this is a bit new to me.
