Plugin suggestion

Hello,

This is my first post here and I would really love some help on this one.

I would love there to be a plugin that displays the latest post from a catigory (I know that this already exists) but I would like one that can display a photo like you do on the main site. Where it just pulls the first image.

I run a site that has several things I want to keep people informed in. I want the people to see the post in certain topics still at the top due to the fact that nothing else has been posted in that category.

Thanks for looking into this for me.

Michael
