Canton City Collector Phyllis Eisen- berg, 37, and Wilbur "Wibb" Lewis, 60. a Gardner-Denver employee, were two of the 431 winners last week to correctly match five of the six winning nmnbers. Both will receive $2,443.50 for their match. Only a St. Leuis man matched all six numbers to win $215,000 for each of the next 20 years. In addition to the two two-grand-plus winners, Lewis' wife also won $73. She was one of 21,541 winners that picked four of the six numbers. Mrs. Eisenberg, who won $24 last week with a four-number match, and ll several months ago used the same four sets of numbers (four tickets at two-for-a-dollar) that she used last week. She knew she had another four-number winner this week, but until fellow city employees looked at the ticket, she didn't know she had a five-number match. Lewis said he's used the same numbers for eight weeks and collected $18 one week. The winning tickets were bought this week at the High Hat in Quincy, though Lewis used to buy them at Grampa's in Quincy, but changed because he wasn't winning. Mrs. Eisenberg said she has been playing lottery games for six months. Lewis has had more experience and has been playing some form of lottery games since he left the Navy in 1965. Lewis said he'd only won about $195 total from several previous wins. Mrs. Eisenberg said part of the new money will go towards a new back door for her home, which was damaged about seven years ago in a break-in attempt. Lewis said his money would go toward paying bills. Mrs. Eisenberg spends about $2 a week on tickets, which Lewis picks up for her. Lewis wouldn't say how much, but said he spends "over $10 a week" on lottery tickets. Both said they will continue to play Illinois lottery games and Mrs. Eisenberg optimistically plans to match all six numbers. Lewis is just as optimistic and plans "to spend the next bunch on myself." Though they are among the first winners to publicly announce success. in the games, there have been reports of other winners in the county that desire anonymity. Lake and Dam facilities Lisa Brown is new counselor Water was off for more than eight hours Tuesday, Aug. , for many downtown Canton customers. Here, two city crew members begin preliminary jack-hammering at the intersection of Fourth and Lewis Streets. This is the third break in the area of the intersection in recent years.
