    How would one widen the Mindstream theme sidebar without it being pushed down?

    It all comes down to math.

    Your #inner .wrap is set to 960px. Your #content is set to 600px with 40px on your left and right padding. Your #sidebar is set to #280px.

    That means that 960 = 680 + 280. If you want the sidebar to be wider, you need to do one of the following (or a mixture depending on what you want visually):

    widen your #inner .wrap
    make your #content narrower
    or you could widen your #inner .wrap (but 960px is a pretty good standard these days)

    Then you can widen your #sidebar.

    You do all of this in your Appearance/Editor and editing your style.css.
