ARNOLD MAN WINS $100,000 PLAYING POWERBALL
A delivery truck driver from Arnold drove home $100,000 after matching all five white ball numbers drawn in the Nov. 25 Powerball drawing. Edward Martin, 43, said he plans to pay off some bills, make some investments and buy a newer car with his winnings.
Martin purchased his winning ticket at the Smoke Shop, 1389 Jeffco Blvd. in Arnold. He let the computer pick the five lucky numbers. They were: 2, 37, 38, 39 and 42.
To date, 507 tickets worth $100,000 have been sold in Missouri since Powerball began in 1992.
