MARATHON, FL – Florida, the land of sunshine, and the latest news that’s even better than the arrival of the phone book.
The latest Powerball winning ticket came from Florida. And it was a judge from Bethlehem, PA, who bought it during a fishing trip with friends.
James Stocklas was back home having coffee at a restaurant when he read a headline that someone bought the $291-million lottery ticket in Florida.
When he looked at his ticket, every number was a match.
The judge bought breakfast for everyone in the restaurant.
He and his two fishing buds will get around $40 million each from the ticket he got while buying a bag of ice.
He says he’s going to spend some money helping out his family.
And that might include his brother Bob, who also had a winning ticket.
Bob won seven bucks.
Maybe his rich bro will take him on the next trip.
Someone’s gotta fetch ice and clean the fish.
