A mechanic from Higbee can add $5,000 to his toolbox after winning $5,000 in the Sept. 14 Powerball drawing. Donald "Donnie" Johnston, 48, won the prize by matching four of the white-ball numbers drawn along with the Powerball.
Johnston, who works for PSI in Huntsville, said he plans to use his winnings to pay bills.
Johnston said he purchased two Powerball tickets on Sept. 14 at the Bobber Cafe in Sullivan, when he was visiting friends. He found out one was a $5,000 winner on Sept. 16. The winning numbers from that drawing were: 5, 14, 26, 31, 40 and the Powerball number was 29.
