LAMAR MAN WINS $100,000 POWERBALL PRIZE
A Lamar man is $100,000 richer after matching all five white-ball numbers drawn in the April 26 Powerball drawing. Charles Burchett, 52, purchased his winning ticket at Eastside Amoco, 1008 E. 12th
St. in Lamar. He let the computer pick his winning numbers. They were: 5, 11, 13, 22 and 36.
Burchett, a supervisor for a wire manufacturer, said he plans to use the money to pay bills.
To date, 645 Powerball tickets sold in Missouri have matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $100,000 prize.
