Slater Man Wins $5,000 In Powerball
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.
