Dilworth man not planning big changes after winning $200,000 Powerball prize

FARGO – A Dilworth man who works at a liquor store and donates plasma for extra cash said today he plans to use his winnings from a $200,000 Powerball prize to pay off student loans and his credit card.

Clayton Kuhlemeyer accepted his check today at Sunmart Foods at 3175 25th St. S. in Fargo, where he bought the winning ticket July 30.

Kuhlemeyer’s take-home prize for matching all five white balls was $138,920 after federal and state taxes were taken out.

The 25-year-old said he has played the Powerball lottery for the past two years, walking twice a week from his job at Crown Liquors to the Sunmart store in the same strip mall to buy one random Quick Pick ticket.
