Nine people from Roswell have come forward and claimed the $207 million Powerball jackpot from last Saturday’s drawing.
The group collectively purchased the winning ticket from a gas station on Main Street in Roswell. They have decided to take a $102.9 million lump sum.
The nine are identified as Carl and Holly Baldwin, Kevin and Jessica Breedyk, Ron and Cindy Miller, Ryan and Nicole Miller, and Randy Miller.
Holly Baldwin purchased the tickets at a gas station two hours before the Sept. 27 drawing with money pitched in by the group.
Ron Miller said the winners will invest most of the money and set up a trust for charity. The winning numbers were 13, 24, 29, 40, 52 with 29 as the Powerball number.
The article also indicates that a Lowes might be built there. Whether or not it is, a large shopping center is needed around that area. Hopefully with a grocery store and a gas station.
Over on Coors rood north, past Paseo Del Norte, there’s a gas station offering gas for $1.99 a gallon. Of course there’s a line.
