Illinois Chaplain Stumbles Onto Winning Powerball Ticket

By Metro Source

Glen Ellyn, IL -- A retired Illinois chaplain must have gotten help from a higher power after stumbling on a winning lottery ticket that makes him the state's newest millionaire. Sixty-eight-year-old Ron Yurcas says he was cleaning out his desk last week when he stumbled on the Powerball lottery ticket he bought from the August 22nd drawing which turns out is worth one-million dollars. He says he double-checked the numbers at least 25 times and still can't believe he won. Yurcas says he will use some of the winnings to support his three kids and four grandchildren and use the rest for a happy retirement.
