MEXICO MAN GETS $100,000 VALENTINE
A Mexico man’s Valentine’s Day is 100,000 times sweeter after winning a large Powerball prize last Wednesday. Donald "Don" Feger Jr., 39, claimed his $100,000 prize today at the Missouri Lottery’s Jefferson City office.
Feger, who owns Apollo Pumping Service in Mexico, said he plans to reinvest the money into his business or start another business. He may also take a trip and buy his two sons a four-wheeler.
Feger said until now, the only thing he had ever won was a toaster.
He purchased his winning Powerball ticket at Short Stop, 1813 Monroe in Columbia, while in town on business. He let the computer pick the winning numbers. They were: 5, 29, 36, 40 and 49.
