POWERBALL PLAYER $100,000 RICHER
Roger Payne, 37, of Marshall bought one of his two weekly Powerball tickets last Wednesday at the Collins Countryside Convenience store, Highway 65 N. in Marshall. It was not until Saturday morning that he went to check his numbers and found out he was a winner of the $100,000 Powerball prize.
Payne, an employee of Deems Farm Equipment, and his wife, Bryanne, are the parents of two young children. Payne plans to use his money to pay for his recent purchases-a new home and new furniture.
Payne chose his numbers using "Quick Pick." The winning numbers were: 7, 19, 43, 46, and 47.
