    Are you sure he got only one penny a copy way back when?I had thirty customers when I delivered papers for the Telegram way back in the early 60s and we got 15 cents a copy for the weekend edition and 8 cents for the daily.Just wondering!

    They don't make them like Carl LeGrown any more. Pity!

    Great job Uncle Carl! It was such a thrill to see you on the front page of the paper today. Now everyone knows what your friends and family have known for years; that you are a very hard worker and a great man. So very proud of you!

    Congratulations on a job well done Carl!! I don't think most people would have stayed at a job that long, especially one that keeps them outdoors in our Newfoundland weather for so long a period of time. I am not a customer of your's, but I do hope to continue seeing you on Water Street. Keep up the great job.

    Now, if only half the public servant types working at Atlantic Place, like the School Boards and Courts, had the same work ethic...... Hope they learn something from him as a constant reminder on their doorstep.

    Finally, a good NEWS story, about a person who sells the NEWS. His work ethic is exemplary. That is a message we all can only to strive for.

      I used to buy my Telegram from Carl when I worked downtown. That was over 20 years ago. It's good to see Carl is still in good health and still faithfully delivering his papers. Congratulations, Carl!!
