JEFFERSON CITY BUS DRIVER FINDS $1,000 "MONEYBAG"
A Jefferson City school bus driver made a quick $1,000 March 18 while waiting for students who were bowling at Westgate Lanes in Jefferson City. Robert "Bob" Hohenstreet, 70, said he drove some high school students to the bowling lanes, and while he was waiting to take them back, he purchased $5 worth of Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets. One of the tickets, from the game called "Moneybags," turned out to be worth $1,000.
Hohenstreet said he plans to use the prize money on his upcoming "spring break" trip to Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
"Moneybags," a $1 Scratchers game, officially went on sale Dec. 25, 2002.
