Wisconsin man claims $1M Powerball prize


October 24, 2014

STANLEY A Wisconsin man says he has no plans yet how to spend a $1 million Powerball prize.

Robert Bogard of Stanley claimed his winnings Thursday. But Bogard admitted he has no particular plans on how to spend the money.

The Leader-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1FLpMNg) reports the 57-year-old paid his truck off and plans to buy an enclosed trailer for his four-wheeler, but is undecided about how to spend the rest.

Bogard says eventually he might buy some property, but he'll take it "one day at a time."

Bogard appeared at a news conference with Wisconsin Lottery officials at Stanley Travel Stop, where he bought the $1 million winning ticket in Saturday's Powerball drawing.

Bogard will receive about $673,000 after taxes.
