Circulation > 11-year-old delivers Los Alamos Monitor on his scooter

By Tris DeRoma

This summer, residents living on Paige Loop and Meadow Lane have come to know a now familiar sight; 11-year-old Kayden Shrader and his metallic blue, electric, Razor scooter.
With his Los Alamos Monitor carrier bag slung over one shoulder, a steady foot and an aim that’s true, Shrader has been delivering issues of the Los Alamos Monitor to resident’s doorsteps for at least a couple of months via his trusty scooter.
While Shrader’s customers are happy with his service, he wants his customers to know he’s just as happy too.
“It gets me outside for fresh air,” he said.
With a little goading from his mother though, Kayden also admits he likes the money he earns from it as well.
With a little financial guidance from mom and dad, it was how he was able to buy his scooter in the first place. His brother Gavin, who is 9, also has a paper route, and between the two of them they’ve bought other things as well, including video games and other things they wanted.
Currently, they are both saving up for a laptop.
But, according to Kayden and Gavin’s mother, Trina, it’s not all about buying “stuff.”
