Schuyler Co. Man Wins Lottery

BURDETT, NY (WENY) -- A Schuyler County man is waking up $1 million dollars richer this morning. Doid Kerns from Valois won a recent Powerball drawing.

     The New York Lottery presented a big over-sized prize a little earlier today at the Dandy Mini Mart in Burdett. The Powerball second prize was paid out as a one-time lump sum payment. Kerns will receive a net check for over $661,000 after required withholdings. He plans to pay off his house and share some with his family.

     Kerns is the 84th New Yorker to claim a New York lottery prize of a million dollars or more so far this year!
