KANSAS CITY WOMAN WINS $25,000
A Kansas City woman plans to update her house and buy new carpet after winning $25,000 tax-paid* in the Missouri Lottery’s SHOW ME 5 drawing. Cheryl Turner, 53, won the prize with a ticket she bought for Tuesday night’s drawing.
Turner, who is an inspector for the Ford Motor Co., purchased her winning ticket at Price Chopper, 8700 E. 63rd St. in Kansas City, when she was grocery shopping. She let the computer randomly generate the winning combination. Those numbers were: 2, 10, 12, 27 and 29.
