I got it working! YAY! Last night after I made that post I discovered that whenever I touched /LE on the latch and hit reset (with the RC circuit) it would work fine. Confused I went to bed, and stared trouble shooting it this morning. After several hours of being totally confused I finally figured it out, I had the ground wire for the latch ran right under the oscillator; this was causing so much noise on this chip that it refused to work. Once I moved the wire everything was fine. It is nice to have this done!
