For the second time in one week, the Missouri Lottery has made a millionaire out of a Lotto player in the St. Louis area.
One lucky ticket was sold at the Dierbergs in the 62-hundred block of Mid Rivers Mall Drive in St. Peters. The winner matched all six numbers drawn on April 27 to win the $1.1 million jackpot prize. The winning number combination was: 3, 14, 25, 32, 35 and 44.
May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Lottery says, “In addition to this weekend’s big winner, we’re also anxiously awaiting to hear from last Saturday’s Lotto winner in Florissant.”
That ticket, worth $2.7 million, was sold at QuikTrip, 2105 N. Highway 67, for the April 20 drawing. The winning number combination was: 14, 20, 21, 24, 25 and 35.
Two suspects are under arrest in the shooting of a man who tried to get help at a Quiktrip gas station in Berkeley
Authorities said while the suspects are in custody but charges have not yet been filed.
St. Louis County Police spokesman Randy Vaughn said 20-year-old Paul Moore drove to the gas station in Bel Ridge near I-170 and Natural Bridge Rd.
Police said the shooting happened in the 9300 block of Koenig Circle in Berkeley.
Moore was rushed to the hospital, where he later died.
Authorities said more information on the case would be released if charges are filed.
St Louis based Peabody Energy is holding its annual shareholders meeting in Wyoming to highlight the importance of the coal-rich Powder River Basin.
A delegation of more than a dozen retired and active mine workers from West Virginia, Illinois, Kentucky and Florida are protesting.
One group critical of the company, Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, claims the company is trying to avoid hearing concerns in its hometown.
Meantime, thousands of protesting mine workers returned to St. Louis today as hearings begin in U.S. Bankruptcy Court on demands by Peabody's Patriot Coal Company. Miners accuse Peabody of eliminating health care for retired miners and for making cuts in pay, benefits and working conditions for current miners.
In a statement, Peabody Energy says "The union continues to grandstand when it knows that this matter will be decided in the courts. Patriot was highly successful following its launch more than five years ago with significant assets, low debt and a market value that more than quadrupled in less than a year. Peabody has lived up to its obligations and continues to do so. This is a matter between the union and Patriot Coal, and will be decided in the bankruptcy court."
