    Laid-Off Factory Worker Wins Powerball

    INDIANAPOLIS - A man who was laid off last week from his job at a tractor factory claimed a $89 million Powerball prize Monday with the sole winning ticket.



    Tim Rivers said he and his wife, Pam, plan to buy a new house and move out of their mobile home in the town of Salem in southern Indiana.


    The couple, who are both 24 and have two young children, opted for the cash option and will receive $49.9 million before taxes, a Hoosier Lottery spokeswoman said.


    "Winning that much money terrified me," Tim Rivers said, adding that when he realized Saturday he had a winning ticket he immediately called a financial planner.


    Pam Rivers, who works at a daycare center, said both she and her husband plan to return to school and she hopes to become a nurse.


    They have a 6-month-old son, and a daughter, 4.


    The winning numbers for Saturday night's drawing were: 11, 44, 45, 48, 50 and Powerball 2.

    Man, my old boss is hating it if I ever strike it rich!

    I'd be happy if I won a couple hundred bucks in the lottery. I'm sure I could find something to do with 89 million though.
