Dozens of families in Burlington won’t have to worry about debts they owed to an elementary school. Jerry Fenton, a motel owner in Burlington, went to Grimes Elementary School this week and paid off all of the school lunch late fees at his alma mater. “The check I wrote was for $700. The outstanding balance was like $485, but I wanted some cushion in case other people fell into troubles for the rest of the school year,” Fenton told Radio Iowa. The generous gesture erased negative balances on school lunch accounts for 89 children.
