Teacher Claims Powerball Prize

A teacher has claimed a $100,000 Powerball prize.

North Dakota lottery officials say Ruth Pederson of Grand Forks claimed her prize Tuesday.

Pederson matched four white balls and the Powerball in Saturday’s drawing to win the game’s $50,000 prize.

An option she purchased doubled the amount.

The Powerball jackpot sits at $154 million for tonight’s drawing.
