CALUMET, Mich. - Police in this Upper Peninsula town had forgotten about the $1 parking ticket written on Sept. 1, 1976.
But the woman it was issued to hadn't forgotten.
The ticket, a $20 bill, and a note arrived at police headquarters last month in an envelope with no return address.
The note read: "I always had good intentions of paying it. I put it aside and every once in a while I would come across it and said, 'Some day I'm going to pay it.' Now I think it's time."
