Shop St. Joseph Winner

A local St. Joseph woman is the winner of the shop local campaign there.

Alma Carpenter has won the grand prize of $10,000 in the "Shop St. Joseph" program. Shoppers could get numbered tickets by purchasing locally. The 68 year old received about 80 tickets at JC Penney and one of them was the matching number. Carpenter says she plans to buy more gifts for her 8 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren with her winnings, and pay off a bill.
