A Keokuk couple soon celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary got an early present by winning the lottery.
Richard and Mariam Phillips won $100,000 after matching all five numbers in the May 4 Illinois Lucky Day Lotto drawing.
Richard says they plan on having a big party with their seven children, 18 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
They also plan on paying bills and maybe take a trip to California.
Phillips bought his winning ticket at Pat's Pit Stop in Hamilton.
