A Waynesville retiree is paying off some medical bills after winning $25,000 tax paid* in Saturday’s Missouri Lottery’s SHOW ME 5 drawing. Charles Ousley, 75, said the money will help him pay off some hospital bills. Ousley, who is a retired truck driver and welder, purchased his winning ticket at Speedy’s Food Mart/Deli, 105 Historic Route 66 in Waynesville, when he stopped for coffee. He let the computer pick the winning numbers. They were: 7, 15, 18, 19 and 23. To date, 920 tickets worth $25,000 tax paid have been sold since the SHOW ME 5 game began in November 1994. * Twenty-eight percent federal and 4 percent state taxes are withheld from the total prize amount of $36,764.70 to provide $25,000 cash at the time of redemption. Depending on personal income, winners may owe additional taxes for the prize, or they may receive a refund.
