A Pella man started his recent vacation on a high note by winning a big lottery prize.

Josh Roose said he stepped out of his semi on Friday, August 1st at the Git-N-Go on Oskaloosa Street in Pella for a couple of “Super Crossword” scratch tickets. He scratched them off the same day at his friend’s house and ended up winning the 13th of 37 top prizes of $50,000 available in the game. Roose says he trucks all over the U.S. but he only plays the lottery when he is home.
