West Lafayette man wins $1 million on last 'Hoosier Millionaire'

Indiana LotteryIndiana Lottery: West Lafayette man wins $1 million on last 'Hoosier Millionaire'

A West Lafayette, Indiana, man won $1,022,000 on the final "Hoosier Millionaire" television show, which ended its 16-year run Saturday night with a special broadcast.

Clarence Moore's winnings on the "Grand Finale" show boosted his total prize money, including winnings from preliminary rounds, to $1,044,000. He became the show's 191st and last millionaire.

After drawing from 36,000 entries, 12 semifinalists were selected to compete in two preliminary rounds, where the top six players competed in the Grand Finale game for a guaranteed $1 million in a one-on-one basketball-themed game.

The other contestants and their winnings were: Earlita Webster, Indianapolis, $64,000; Jamie Swisher, Plainfield, $24,000; Carroll Clark, South Bend, $35,000; William Farno, New Castle, $12,000; and Charles Baker, Williamsport, $26,000.

The show's last regular episode aired Nov. 19. Lottery officials canceled the show due to declining viewership and sluggish scratch-off ticket sales. The show first aired in October 1989.

Something's wockyjawed here, naturally.  You unhappy Indianans have already picked up on it I'd imagine.

West Lafayette got no business trying to pass itself off as someplace in Indiana.  Lafayette's way south.  Belongs to Loooosianans lock stock and banana peel.

This place needs to either call itself North Lafayette, or it needs to build a raft with a house on it and float downstream a few states.  And take that million plus some change with it.

              Arizona, Iowa, and Louisiana have a minimum age of 21; in Nebraska it's 19. Several states have a 21 minimum for certain games (21 in NY for Quick Draw where alcoholic beverages are served.)

              In parts of Canada it's 19 (but no higher).
