TWO WINNING TICKETS SOLD AT MACADOODLES CLAIMED
A married couple and a brother and sister team came forward to claim the two $100,000 winning Powerball tickets sold at Macadoodles for the Aug. 25 draw. John and Lois Coulter of Springdale, Ark., claimed one of the $100,000 prizes, and Shawna Blair and her brother Darrin Ross, both of Centerton, Ark., claimed the other prize.
Both of the ticket holders let the computer generate the winning numbers on their tickets. The winning numbers were: 8, 17, 22, 42 and 47.
The Coulters said they plan to use their windfall to set up college funds for their three young children. They would also like to take a trip to Walt Disney World.
Shawna Blair, 31, a homemaker who claimed the prize on her twins’ first birthday on Aug. 27, said she plans to invest her share of the winnings to put toward a home she and her husband, David, plan to build. She would also like to take a trip to Cancun, to see the ocean for the first time.
Darrin Ross, 34, her brother, plans to use his half of the $100,000 prize to pay bills and buy a pickup truck.
To date, 557 tickets worth $100,000 have been sold in Missouri since the Powerball game began in April 1992.
