FISH MARKET OWNER WINS $100,000 IN CHARLACK
The owner of a fish market in Alton, Ill., is swimming in the dough after winning $100,000 playing Powerball on Dec. 28. John Saettele, 47, Jerseyville, Ill., said he stopped at Mobil Mart, 8566 St. Charles Road in Charlack on Dec. 27 to buy fuel for his truck and a soda. While there, he also bought a $2 Powerball ticket.
"We might add on to the house or buy another house," he said. Saettele said he and his wife, Brenda "Sue," also plan to pay some bills and put some money in the bank.
Saettele let the computer pick the numbers on his winning ticket. They were: 2, 15, 38, 43 and 50.
To date, 636 Powerball tickets sold in Missouri have matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $100,000 prize.
