Powerball Winner Claims Prize

AP - 6/29/2007 12:45 PM - Updated 6/29/2007 12:53 PM

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The winner of Wednesday's $105.8 million Powerball is an Oklahoma family which claimed their prize Friday in Oklahoma City. The winning ticket matched the five numbers and the Powerball and was sold at a convenience store in Roland in eastern Oklahoma.

The state Lottery Commission says the family walked into commission headquarters Friday with the winning ticket.

The family's name wasn't immediately released but they will meet with reporters Friday afternoon at the Lottery Commission headquarters.

    If I remember correctly, Oklahoma allows a winner to claim as a trust.  I wonder, will the latest Powerball winner use this option?

      the story said they would meet with reporters this afternoon but if they form a trust they will have their lawyers show up and answer a few reporters questions but none that will reveal too much about their privacy. congrats to the winners in oklahoma..

        Here is your answer!

        OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The winners of Wednesday's $105.8 million Powerball is a 65-year-old Oklahoma truck driver and his 50-year-old wife.

        Don and Joyce Harvey of Muldrow claimed their prize Friday in Oklahoma City.

        Joyce Harvey bought the winning ticket at a convenience store in Roland near their home in eastern Oklahoma.

        Don Harvey says he's just back from delivering air conditioners to Wisconsin and his truck broke down so part of the winnings will go for another truck as he plans to keep working.

        The two say they'll also pay bills and help out family and may buy a new house _ but they don't think the winnings will change their lifestyle.

        The Harveys walked into the state Lottery Commission headquarters in Oklahoma City about noon today to claim the prize.

          Ah, if only I had $100,000 for everyone that said "keep working" and "our lives won't change much"...........
