CITY OF SPRINGFIELD WORKER WINS $25,000
A worker for the city of Springfield is $25,000 richer after matching all five numbers in the Nov. 25 SHOW ME 5 drawing. Bruce Bodine, 32, said he’ll use the tax-paid* windfall to pay bills and loans. He may also buy some small items like a new chain saw.
Bodine purchased his winning ticket at Crossroads General Store, Highways 13 and O in Springfield. He used a combination of birthdays to select the winning combination. Those numbers were: 5, 11, 12, 20 and 28.
To date, 681 SHOW ME 5 players have won $25,000 tax paid* since that game began in November 1994.
