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?

I would keep your eye out for the article and then if they use any of your quotes, I would post in your websites news section that you were quoted in that article

Matt-

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