Angular multiple panels (controllers) on same page; one controller is not loading; using Angular and Foundation Apps

Hello Treehouse Community, I am learning Angular and Foundation Apps use of front matter. I have gone through both relevant courses and am now trying to build my own app, a messages app if you will. I would like to display two panels on the homepage (home.html). I would like the messages to be the right panel, and the left panel (a sidebar) to be generated from a filter based on the messages right panel. home.html does not have a declared controller, and it's front matter is simply the default. I am displaying the sidebar (and would prefer use a controller for that), and have added a ui-view to the page as such

name: home
url: /

<div class="grid-content medium-3">
My sidepanel accordion here

<div ui-view>
<!-- I presume this is where messages would show up -->

The messages.html I have made a child of home by using the front matter

name: home.messages
url: /templates/messages.html
controller: MessagesCtrl

The messages panel is not loading. How can I declare both the sidebar panel and messages right panel as controllers? How can I get both to load in home.html?
