ST. LOUIS WOMAN TO SEE MICKEY MOUSE
A 22-year-old St. Louis woman (63134*) is making plans for a Walt Disney World vacation this summer after winning $25,000 tax paid** in the Missouri Lottery’s SHOW ME 5 drawing on Monday. Chrystal Simms said she will also use the prize money to pay off her ’97 Chevy Camaro and share some money with her parents.
Simms purchased her winning ticket Monday afternoon at Lee’s Market, 8650 Frost Ave. in St. Louis. She let the computer pick the combination on her winning ticket.
Those numbers were: 4, 11, 14, 20 and 23.
