Even if they are decades old, some debts can be repaid.

The Independence (Mo.) Examiner
reported that the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum paid off President Truman’s overdue newspaper bill, amounting to $56.63, including interest. The money went to 80-year-old George Lund, who was Truman’s paperboy in 1947. The then-15-year-old had the Truman home on his route for about six months. He told the Examiner he remembered the amount owed was about $7.50.

Lund and his fellow residents at the Tallgrass Creek retirement community witnessed the official payment during the “We’re Just Wild About Harry” event.
