POWERBALL PLAYER WINS $100,000
Charles Chilton, 55, of De Soto bought one of his two weekly Powerball tickets last Wednesday at the De Soto Citgo, 520 N. Main in De Soto. It was not until Wednesday of the following week that he went to check his numbers and found out his ticket was a $100,000 winner.
"It was in my truck since last Thursday," said Chilton.
Chilton, a retired General Motors employee, and his wife, Sheila, plan to use the money to "pay off some bills and maybe buy a Cadillac."
Chilton chose his numbers using "Quick Pick." The winning numbers were: 6, 31, 38, 46, and 47.
