OP here - still haven't heard back. I don't want to be a programmer; I want to be an author. But being featured in the paper was a start for me.

The writer/reporter doesn't write the captions or headlines. you need to call Editorial and give their sub-editor shit. They will be stubborn but you hold your ground, you have right to restitution.

That sucks...though having worked as a reporter, the people writing the photo captions are usually the copy editors and not the reporters (I had a few situations where an editor mis-captioned something related to my story and it always annoyed me.) I'd suggest contacting the paper's copy editor or editor for the section where your article appeared.

You've got to call editorial! The reporters don't write the captions or the headlines, that's the sub-editor. Call them up a few times and complain. They will hold their ground but you have a right to restitution. Go into their office if you want to really take this up with them. Just remember it's not the writer's fault.
