In response to my previous posts on the Winner winning Powerball winner ticket sold in Winner, SD...note all the "winners" in there..just like papers and other media, I just can't resist that now trite combination...anyway..the response suggests that the actual winner lives in the Mission, SD area.
May recently have had serious money problems and is also alleged to raise a fine crop of prairie dogs which must keep hunters happy. Of course, I don't know how anybody knows all that and why somebody does, or why it has leaked out now.
But, the manager of Lil' Feller has been quoted in newspapers as guessing a prairie dog hunter was involved. That might be close even if this isn't horseshoes.
But just in case, remember the initials "A.W. " And those happen to be mine as well if we add a D in front, but it ain't me and I'm not from Mission, SD.
Isn't speculation and beating a barely breathing horse just wonderful when real news is short?
(EDIT)Just noticed that the Mitchell Daily Republic this morning (May 30, 2009) has a story on the Powerball buzz around Mission.
