Wisconsin couple wins $1-million Powerball consolation prize

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A northwest Wisconsin couple won a million dollars playing Powerball in Louisiana.

57-year-old Donald Marek and his wife JoAnn are from Frederic in Polk County. They were baby-sitting their grandchildren near New Orleans last week, when they bought a Quick Pick Powerball ticket at a Race-Trac convenience store in suburban Slidell. It matched all five regular numbers but not the Powerball in last Wednesday night's drawing -- and it netted the Mareks $700,000 after taxes were deducted.

Donald Marek says he'll put the money toward the couple's retirement. The store got $10,000, or one-percent of the gross prize, for selling the ticket.
