The 90-Year-Old Paperboy

We don't know whether Martin Teel of Christopher, Illinois, delivers newspaper on Easy Street, Middle Road, or Hard Way, but we do know that he's proof that you're never too old to deliver the newspaper. You see, he's 90 years young:

Imagine biking three miles a day, rain or shine. Now imagine doing that when you're 90-years-old. There is one paperboy in southern Illinois who doesn't let anything stand in his way.

Every afternoon Marvin Teel of Christopher heads out on his daily route. "I have about three miles to cover all over town," said Teel. "(It) takes about an hour and a half."

Kadee Brosseau of KFVS12 has the story - Thanks Tiffany!

Cool! Martin is only a little over ten miles from me. I guess I missed his story on the local news because KFVS had been off Dish Network for a week or so because they were in the process of negotiating a new contract. Thanks for posting!
