Wow, Drumroll please... So this has finally been resolved. It took a while to get all the details ironed out such as printing, mounting, installation...
Details with the local franchise:
1. paying me a very reasonable sum of cash for the first 2 poor images (which were printed from 100k web sized files)
2. using seven more of my images of various student athletes, replacing the first 2. I now upload to their FTP site full size TIFFs (paid for all 7)
3. offering to replace all seven at repeated intervals throughout the school year (repeatable cash flow)
4. offering to place my business card holder by the soda self serve station (advertising)
Overall it took longer than I thought it should but by being patient and respectful we worked out a great deal for both sides. Thanks to everyone for sharing some laughs and some helpful information.
BTW, No lawyers were involved
