The latest big winner in the Hoosier Lottery Cash 5 game is Rushville resident William (Bill) Shanahan.
For a number of years, Shanahan called North Lauderdale, Fla., home although he returned to his roots a few years ago and currently works in nearby Shelbyville.
Shanahan, purchased his lucky ticket at Bob-O-Link Liquors, 230 South Main Street and claimed his winning ticket at the Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis, recently.
The Rushville resident said he enjoys playing the lottery, but had to check his winning ticket multiple times to make sure he was reading it right.
“Once I was sure I had won, I called my brother Dan and said I need a ride to Indianapolis next week. He asked why, and I said because I just won the lottery and I need to claim the prize,” Shanahan said with a laugh.
He continued by saying that he plans on paying off a number of bills with his winnings.
