i called the lady back from the article

She said that it was telling people about the basics in lawn care of do's and dont's and what prices everything runs for in this part of town for wiregrass living magazine

I asked her about mentioning my name in the article, and she said she wasnt sure if that could be done, but she would check into it

That is kind of messed up. I think she should include your name and business name in the article if she is interviewing you.

I am really glad you pointed this out to us.

Was this for a local paper?

What's your view on this?

Any of us web designer type guys could help you with that. It's just a matter of revamping the template a bit.

did someone say web designer??? http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I got a call a couple of years ago from a reporter from 'Toronto Star' big shot paper...she had me on the line for at least an hour asking me all sorts of entry level questions.

After the call I felt used...lol, but I did. At least my name was in the footnotes.

Richard,

Do you still have a copy of the article? Did you ever put it online?

That would be a great story to add to The Lawn Blog! Plus I'd love to see it as well.

You could just add another button and make a whole new category of sorts...
