Reprinted with Permission

by Y. M. Roger

Nine-year-old Robbie hurried excitedly from school. February first meant he would be collecting last month’s magazines from offices along his route.
He arrived with arms full - mom letting him into the Rainbow Assisted-Living offices where she worked until eight.
Robbie commandeered the office floor, carefully choosing articles to cut out and grouping them into topics like entertainment, politics, more. He glued these to pages from the office recycle bin.
He photocopied Robbie’s Reprints on only bin papers. For years, editions sold to Rainbow residents for two dollars each.
Rainbow celebrated when Robbie won the Young Entrepreneur’s Scholarship for journalism.
