Linn Realtor Wins $10,000 Playing Powerball

Story Photo A Linn realtor got an early Christmas present when his Powerball ticket for the Dec. 2 drawing matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball number to win $10,000. Robert "Bob" Wilbers, 61, said he and his wife, Mary, plan to give some of the prize money to a favorite charity, the Society of St. Jude.
"We might get a new kitchen floor," Wilbers added. "It’ll be a nicer Christmas."
Wilbers bought his winning ticket at Thriftway Supermarket, 318 W. Main St. in Linn. He let the computer "Quick Pick" his winning numbers.
The third-level Powerball prize increased from $5,000 to $10,000 in August 2005, when the game was redesigned for the fourth time since it started in April 1992.
