9 From Roswell, NM, Claim $200M Powerball Jackpot

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) _ Roswell, N.M., is usually more
associated with little green men than with greenbacks.
But nine residents brought different attention to the town
Friday when they claimed a Powerball jackpot worth more than $200
million.
Holly Baldwin bought the tickets at a gas station two hours
before the Sept. 27 drawing. Her group decided to take a lump
payment of more than $100 million.
Fellow winner Ron Miller says they will invest most of the money
and set up a charity trust.
The winning numbers were 13, 24, 29, 40 and 52, with 29 as the
Powerball number. The $206.9 million jackpot is New Mexico's
largest lottery sum ever and the 15th-largest jackpot in Powerball
history.
Roswell is best known as the site of a rumored UFO crash in the
'40s.
