KANSAS CITY WOMAN WINS $25,000 TAX PAID
A Kansas City woman can "catch up" with some bills after winning $25,000 tax paid* by matching all five numbers in last night’s Missouri Lottery’s SHOW ME 5 game. Mary Dameron, 57, said the money couldn’t have come at a better time, since she still has some bills from her husband’s funeral nearly two years ago. She also plans to invest some of the winnings.
Dameron purchased her winning ticket yesterday at Fast Stop, 705 E. 75th St. in Kansas City. The location used to be a QuikTrip convenience store.
Dameron selected her winning numbers at random. They were: 1, 8, 10, 21 and 28.
