A firefighter received a pleasant surprise from the lottery a month before he retires. Dave Hebert, who is also an Army veteran, won $100,000. The Powerball ticket Hebert bought showed him winning just $50,000, but that was doubled since he paid extra for the Power Play option.
Hebert is set to receive about $69,250 net of taxes. He wants to use his winnings to pay off bills, help pay for his children’s education and maybe have some fun. If there’s enough left, his definition of fun may include a motorcycle.
