LEBANON TEACHER WINS $25,000 DURING SUMMER BREAK
A substitute teacher for Lebanon’s junior high school is having a lucrative summer vacation after winning $25,000 tax paid* in Saturday night’s SHOW ME 5 drawing. Teresa Matthews, 32, of Lebanon said she plans to use the money to pay bills and buy another car, since her car is not running. She may also take a vacation to the mountains, a sight she has always wanted to see.
Matthews purchased her winning ticket Saturday afternoon while grocery shopping at Ramey Super Market, 550 N. Jefferson in Lebanon. She selected the winning numbers at random. They were: 8, 9, 17, 19 and 21.
