19 TENNESSEANS SHARE $100,000 POWERBALL PRIZE
A group of 19 Tennesseans are sharing a $100,000 Missouri Lottery Powerball prize thanks to a ticket they purchased in Caruthersville. The winners are: Jeffrey Jones, Jerry Wilson, Mackey Forsythe and Dianne Jones, all of Finley, Tenn.; Jeffrey Goad, Scotty Hampton, Bobby Lee, Marvin Craig, Ronnie Doss Sr., James Irby, John Lee and Gerald Canada, all of Dyersburg, Tenn.; Bobby Vaughn, Carl King, Diane Ross and Ronnie Barham, all of Newbern, Tenn.; Mike Boone and Jack Boone, both of Friendship, Tenn.; and Roger Clark of Ridgely, Tenn.
Each will receive a check for approximately $5,263 before taxes.
The group purchased their winning ticket for the March 10 drawing at Mr. B’s Drive Up Package in Caruthersville. They let the computer select the winning number combination. Those numbers were: 12, 19, 26, 30 and 33.
To date, 522 tickets worth $100,000 have been sold in Missouri since Powerball began nine years ago.
