Alrighty, folks, where I come from, my "local paper" is the New York Times. Yes, my picture has been in it once, but I was a toddler and just provided a shot of "playing outside" to illustrate an article about unseasonably nice weather.
SO I thought it was TERRIFICALLY exciting when a reporter came to our church dinner and took pictures. EVEN MORE EXCITING to see my photo pop up in color! with my name spelled correctly! Not even misquoted!!
