Today is Tim Jaynes Day. The Sikeston City Council signed the proclamation setting aside this day to honor Jaynes. The proclamation notes the induction of Jaynes into the Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame today for his work at the Standard Democrat and in the community. Pictured during the presentation of the proclamation on Oct. 13 are, front row, Jaynes' children, Morgan Jaynes and Rory Jaynes; and second row, Jaynes' wife, Christy Jaynes and Mayor Jerry Pullen. Jaynes died of a heart attack at age 38 in July 2008.
