George Epperly of Brookfield is $50,000 richer after uncovering the top prize on a Missouri Lottery "Crossword" Scratchers ticket.  Epperly, 52, bought his ticket at Casey’s, 303 W. Lockling in Brookfield.

"I didn’t believe it when I saw (the prize)," Epperly said.

Epperly plans to use some of his prize money to pay off bills, and he’s going to save the rest.
