ST. LOUIS WOMAN WINS $25,000 TAX PAID
A nurses’ assistant from St. Louis is $25,000 richer after winning a top prize in Wednesday night’s SHOW ME 5 game. Rhema Craib, 37, said she might use the tax-paid* winnings to buy a house.
Craib purchased her winning ticket at Schnucks Market, 6920 Olive Blvd. in University City. She let the computer select the winning combination: 2, 3, 9, 12 and 22.
To date, 698 SHOW ME 5 players have won $25,000 tax paid since that game began in November 1994.
