ARKANSAS ROOFER WINS $100,000 IN POWERBALL
A roofer from Arkansas is on top of the world after winning $100,000 in Powerball. Henry Kennedy, 45, of Clarkridge, Ark., said he plans to use the windfall to buy a new trailer home and new car. He also plans to pay off some bills.
Kennedy purchased his winning ticket Sunday at Miller’s General Store in Tecumseh. He said he has been playing the same set of numbers, which he selected at random, for the past couple months.
The next Powerball jackpot is estimated at $83 million for Saturday night’s drawing.
