Slater Man Wins $5,000 In Powerball

Story Photo A Slater man said he plans to pay taxes with the $5,000 he won on March 19 playing the Missouri Lottery’s Powerball game.  William Erickson, 65, said winning the prize came at a good time of year for him and his wife, Carolyn, with taxes due in a few weeks. 

Erickson bought his winning ticket at Break Time, Highway 240 in Slater on March 19, when he stopped by the business to buy gas. 

Erickson, a retired teacher, used Quick Pick to select his winning numbers.
