BOLCKOW MAN WINS $100,000 PLAYING POWERBALL
A Bolckow man plans to pay off his debts and help his 30-year-old daughter after winning $100,000 in the Dec. 21 Powerball drawing. Timmy Williams, 54, bought his lucky ticket at Shop & Hop Food, 1053 Highway 71 in Bolckow, where his wife works as the manager. He let the computer generate the winning combination of numbers. They were: 5, 22, 34, 39 and 52.
Williams is employed in the battery division at Johnson Controls in St. Joseph.
To date, 636 Powerball tickets sold in Missouri have matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $100,000 prize.
