MURRAY — 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 that the gift stands out as unusual.

Travis says $1 million has been raised so far for the hospice. :happy:
