La Grange Man Matches Five Of Six Numbers In Lotto
A retiree from LaGrange has some extra money to spend on his 15 grandkids this holiday season after he matched five of the six Missouri Lotto numbers drawn on Dec. 6 to win $964. William "Bill" Combs, 68, said he will also send some prize money to his mother.
Combs, a retired pipe fitter, purchased his winning ticket at Ayerco, 400 N. Fourth St. in Canton. He let the computer pick his five lucky numbers on his $1 ticket. They were 2, 4, 21, 42 and 44.
