Old Bill-Donation

     MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - A Chicago businessman who insisted on paying
an unpaid bill dating back some 25 years has instead donated the
money to a Kentucky hospital.
     Zee Enix once ran a home furnishings business in Murray, Ky. He
says the man called him and said he wanted to pay a $600 bill he
had found.
     The Paducah Sun reports that Enix told the man - who did not
want to be identified - that he didn't owe anything. But the
businessman persisted.
     So Enix agreed that the man could instead make a charity
donation to the Murray-Calloway Endowment for Healthcare, which is
working to build a hospice.
     Keith Travis oversees endowments for the Murray-Calloway County
Hospital. He says the gift stands out as unusual.
     Travis says $1 million has been raised so far for the hospice.
