Congrats to the latest Powerball winner

Congrats to the latest Powerball winner. Solomon Jackson of Columbia, South Carolina won $259.9 million in last Wednesday’s big drawing.  He only spent $2.00 on tickets (that sounds like me).

$260M Powerball winner vows to do good

By Alan Gomez, USA TODAY
COLUMBIA, S.C. — The retiree who won the $259.9 million Powerball lottery in South Carolina went to the store where he got the winning ticket for its cheap gas.

“I wanted to save my 3 cents a gallon,” Solomon Jackson said Tuesday of his stop at Murphy USA gas station, which followed a stop at his favorite store: Wal-Mart.

“It’s the savings place, for those of y’all that don’t know,” Jackson told reporters at a lottery claims center in Columbia, S.C.

Jackson, a former assistant supervisor at the state Department of Revenue, now has the happy task of figuring out what to do with the quarter-billion dollars he won in the Aug. 19 Powerball drawing. He shelled out $2 for the win.

During a news conference, Jackson said he would use some of the money to support education programs in South Carolina and would find ways to help others with his winnings.

They were talking about the lottery winner on the TJMS (Tom Joyner Morning Show) this morning with Sheryl Underwood. Sheryl was hollering gold digger alert, stating that she’s heading to Columbia, South Carolina to find Mr. Jackson 🙂
