Bonduel man wins $5,000 at Powerball

Leader Reporter

A Bonduel businessman is $5,000 richer after buying a winning ticket for last Saturday night's Powerball drawing.

Bill Nolan of Nolan Livestock bought his ticket, which matched four of the five numbers, at Lee'z Gas and Mini Mart in Bonduel.

Nolan said he still had not yet claimed his prize from lottery officials, but planned to do so soon.

"It's not really all that much for winnings," said Nolan. "When you figure out what they will take for taxes you could probably throw a good party or take a trip but not much else."
