COLUMBIA MAN WINS $5,000 IN POWERBALL
A Columbia man is going to pay his home loan down after winning $5,000 in the April 13 Powerball drawing. Rex Toles, 49, said he purchased his winning ticket at Moser’s Price Chopper, 705 Business Loop 70 W. in Columbia, when he stopped in for some groceries. He used Quick Pick to select his winning numbers.
To win $5,000 in Powerball, Toles, a computer specialist, matched four of the five white-ball numbers and the Powerball number. The winning white-ball numbers from the April 13 drawing were: 16, 22, 32, 33 and 38. The Powerball number was 13.
