Kearney Lottery Winner to Remain Anonymous


KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) -- Whoever bought a Powerball ticket in Kearney that's worth $1 million has decided to remain anonymous, behind a legal cloak.

The winner has worked with a Kearney attorney to create a legal entity called Carpe Diem LLC.

Nebraska Lottery spokesman Neil Watson says an electronic transfer for $700,000 will be sent in about two weeks. The remaining $300,000 is being withheld for state and federal taxes.

The ticket was bought Dec. 21 and matched five of the six numbers drawn that night. They were 25, 36, 40, 45, 51 and Powerball 8.
