In the early 1970s, my sister Dorothy Goings and I had our very first job working at The Herald-Dispatch passing newspapers seven days a week in the evening.

When got out of school, we knew we had to get home in a hurry, as we had to get the evening paper out. We always were competing with each other on who can finish early or who collected more money Friday or Saturday. We enjoyed riding our bikes down to pay our bill and stop by downtown to spend what we had made that week. Back then, you didn't have very many paper girls, and we did enjoy it.
