TRUCKING COMPANY EMPLOYEES SHARING $100,000

A group of 12 employees at M.B. Trucking Company in Troy are sharing a $100,000 prize after playing Powerball as a group for the first time for the record Christmas day drawing.  The winners, who will each receive approximately $8,333 before taxes, are:  Debbie White, Floyd White, Carl Gray and Ronald Robertson, all of Winfield; Gerald Bartley Sr., Angela Bobeen, Michael Bobeen and Walter Bockhorst, all of Troy; Shad Schwede of Wright City; Eric Spires of Truxton; Scott Mueller of Warrenton; and Grover Turner of Bowling Green.

"It was a merry Christmas present," said Debbie White, the secretary at the company who purchased the tickets for the group.  Each of the 12 participants contributed $10 to the drawing.

White said the 12 employees decided to play Powerball as a group during their work Christmas party.  White bought the group’s tickets at Parkside Mini Mart in Troy.  She let the computer select the numbers on the winning play.  They were:  5, 14, 16, 29 and 53.

To date, 636 Powerball tickets sold in Missouri have matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $100,000 prize.
