Where are the neighborhood Paperboys & Papergirls?

   I remember the days not long ago when the newspaper was delivered by a young boy or young girl. Gone are those days in NE Ohio.

   Our paper is now delivered in the wee hours of the morning unsuitable for young boys and girls to do. Young children had the opportunity to learn responsibility and at the same time get some good ole' exercise.
   I would like to see these paper delivery jobs given back to the youth of our neighborhoods. Could this possibly pull them away from the TV or the video games?
   Even though our paper is now being delivered by, in the newspapers mind, a RESPONSIBLE ADULT, we can't count on the paper being delivered by 6:00 am, or even being left in the paper box by our mailbox on the curb out of the elements.
   I have MS and can't go to the curb to retrieve my paper when there is snow on the ground. I sure miss the times when the paper was delivered right to my front door. I did not mind tipping the paper delivery boy/girl.
   Give the youth in our neighborhoods something to do when they get home from school. They might even be able to start saving money for that new bike!!!
