Woman Claims $1-Million Lottery Prize

LINCOLN -- A northeast Nebraska woman has claimed the $1 million Powerball lottery prize she won with a ticket she bought. Nebraska Lottery officials say the ticket was sold to Patricia Krontz at a convenience store in Homer. Her ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball number in Saturday's drawing. The numbers were 4, 6, 34, 49 and 56, with the Powerball number of 29.  Krontz told lottery officials on Monday that she'll use her winnings to pay some bills.  No one won the jackpot on Saturday night, so it will be around $50 million for Wednesday's drawing.
