Forklift Driver Picks Up $5,000 Playing Powerball
A forklift driver from Gerald picked up a $5,000 prize by playing Powerball on Nov. 6. Ron Keling, 70, said he plans to use his prize money to pay off his wife’s credit card bills and some other bills.
"We also want to go to Branson to see the Christmas lights," said Keling, who works for S & K Pendeflex in Union.
Keling bought his winning Quick Pick ticket at Gerald Conoco, Highway 50 and H in Gerald. He matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball number. The winning numbers were: 18, 22, 33, 38, 44 and the Powerball number was 19.
