Dixon Man Wins $1,000 For Trip
A Dixon man now has $1,000 more to take a fishing trip to Texas this January. George Asbury, 69, said the windfall will be used for travel.
Asbury said just before he left D & G Package Store in St. Robert on Dec. 3, but before he did, he decided to buy one more Scratchers ticket from the "$300,000 Holiday Cash" game. That ticket turned out to be worth $1,000.
"$300,000 Holiday Cash," a $10 game, officially went on sale Oct. 30.
