A retiree from Sedalia can add $25,000 tax-paid* to his retirement fund after matching all five numbers drawn in the Missouri Lottery’s SHOW ME 5 game on Oct. 6. Richard Fitzwilliam, 74, said the win came just in time to help pay for his new home. Fitzwilliam purchased his lucky ticket at Bing’s Thriftway, 16th & Highway 65 in Sedalia. He let the computer pick the winning combination. The numbers were: 1, 2, 16, 20 and 25. * Twenty-eight percent federal and 4 percent state taxes are withheld from the total prize amount of $36,764.70 to provide $25,000 cash at the time of redemption. Depending on personal income, winners may owe additional taxes for the prize, or they may receive a refund.
