On 10 March 2014, The Athens News of Athens, Ohio, published this letter to the editor by Joan Mickelson:
“To the young man in the yellow biker’s outfit riding on the bike path Friday afternoon: You have renewed my faith in people looking out for each other here in Athens. I dropped my wallet while riding my bike on the bike path near the Community Center but didn’t realize it until my ride ended nearly an hour later. I frantically retraced my travels, to no avail, worried about what I had to do to cancel what I’d lost.
“Meanwhile, you not only found my wallet, but took the time to drive to the west side of Athens and deliver it and its contents to my house before I had even returned from searching for it.
“You have ‘paid it ahead,’ and I am deeply indebted to you for your honesty, integrity, and kindness. You didn’t leave your name so I can only tell you thank you from the bottom of my heart via local media. You are my hero!”
