Industry Achiever: Newt Wallace

Since 1947, 93-year-old Newt Wallace has been delivering papers for the Winters (Calif.) Express, a 2,300-circulation weekly. Wallace told The New York Times he still remembers shouting “Extra, extra, read all about it!” on street corners in Muskogee, Okla., in 1930. According to the Times, Wallace bought the Winters Express and the building that housed it in 1946. He ran the paper until 1983, when his son became publisher. After retiring, Wallace continued to write columns, but now he focuses on delivery.  

“I don’t hunt or play golf; I deliver papers,” he told the Times. “I like delivering papers. I get to see the people I know.
