(2/25/12) Wisconsin's newest lottery millionaire has claimed his prize. Kurt Glenzer of Stevens Point received an over-sized check Friday during a news conference in Marshfield.
That's where he bought a Mega Millions' ticket that won him a million dollars in last Friday night's drawing. Glenzer co-owns an auto parts store in Stevens Point. And he said he was delivering parts to customers last Wednesday when he stopped at a Weiler convenience store for a soda – and decided to buy his winning ticket. Glenzer said he didn't realize until two days after the drawing that he won. He submitted his winning ticket at the Wisconsin Lottery office in Madison yesterday. Glenzer will get 672-thousand-500 dollars after taxes. He says he'll use it to take care of some family issues, and put the rest toward his retirement nest egg.
