My picture was published in Thursday paper, The Vicksburg Post, but I was not credited for the picture, which was a first for me. I did contact them by email about it and got a reply that it was a mistake and was being forwarded to the President and Publisher, Tim Reeves. Whether it will be corrected and republished I do not know. I do know that it was an honest mistake and that I'm proud that they considered my picture worthy to be published in our hometown paper, The Vicksburg Post.
