If you do:

$ dig txt wpirg.org

You will see that it has a txt record with garbage in it. Just a quotation.

This is perhaps why DKIM on Yahoo treats it differently than KWLUG

This is how a DKIM should look like (in test mode, but does work, and is
less strict than no test mode)

$ dig txt mail._domainkey.2bits.com

Note that it goes to a subdomain starting with the service (usually
"mail"), then _domainkey

There is a corresponding part on the server, by installing opendkim, and
generating a key.

Setting up DKIM is a huge pain, and therefore I recommend first that you
get the domain owners of wpirg.org to delete the txt record, then try after
DNS has propagated, and see if that solves the problem.
