Thursday, July 18, 2013 N/Warren Town and County News Page Thirteen BUSINESS REVIEW WARREN COUNTY MAN WINS $30,000 LOTTERY PRIZE A Warren County man said he was in disbelief after finding out he won a $30,000 lottery prize on a "Cross- word" instant-scratch ticket. "Took a couple of minutes and I started looking this thing over after I scratched it off and I thought this just doesn't look right," said Mike Miller of Carlisle. "I just was really kind of in shock and I thought this just can't be, just couldn't be." Miller, 45, purchased his winning ticket at Hy-Vee Gas, 912 Jefferson Way, in Indianola. He said he stopped at a Casey's on his way home to confirm his winning ticket. "The clerk about went in shock," he said. "She was like, 'Oh my gosh; you've got to take this, I can't cash thi s thing out here.'" Miller, who works for a truck rental company, daimed his prize Monday at the lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He claimed the 63rd of 97 top prizes of $30,000 available in the Iowa Lottery's Crossword scratch game. Miller and his wife, Kelley, said they plan to pay off some bills and save the rest of their winnings. "It was sure fantastic to win this kind of money and it will sure help us go a long ways with that," Miller said. Crossword is a $3 scratch game. PIayers win a prize by uncovering at least three complete words in the ticket's puzzle. If a player uncovers 10 words, he/she wins $30,000. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 3.82. Thirty-four top prizes of $30,000 are still up for grabs in Crossword, as well as 50 prizes of $3,000 and thou- sands more prizes of $300 and $100. Since the lottery's start in 1985, its players have won more than $3.1 billion in prizes while the lottery has raised more than $1.4 billion for the state programs that benefit all Iowans. Today, lottery proceeds in Iowa have three main pur- poses: They provide support for veterans, help for a variety of significant projects through the state General Fund and backing for the Vision Iowa program, which was implemented to create tourism destinations and community attractions in the state and build and repair schools.

WARREN COUNTY EDC BOARD COMMITS $100,000 TO NEW REVOLVING LOAN FUND The Board of Directors for the Warren County Eco- nomic Development Corporation (WCEDC) voted re- cently to set aside $100,000 to create the area's first countywide revolving loan fund (RLF). The funding would assist startup and expansion plans of small-to- medium-sized businesses in Warren County. The RLF's chief aim will be to provide gap support in partnership with financing provided by Warren County-based private lenders. The organization hopes to enhance the level of deal flow for small business growth on the southern end of the Des Moines Metro- politan region. "We are very excited that after many decades of dis- cussion, a revolving loan fund will become a reality," said Jason White, WCED Executive Director. "Warren County is Iowa's 12th largest county, but ranks 26th among Iowa's 99 counties in total employment. In or- der to reach the fulfillment of the ambitious GroWARRENOw iitiative (WCEDC's five-year strate- gic plan), viable sources of small business capital must exist. Capitalizing good business projects results in job creation." Over the next few months, WCEDC plans to seek ways to grow the RLF's size. One option is to apply to the USDA Rural Development for a match. A successful USDA award could as much as double the size of the RLF. Loan applications will not be available until the WCEDC completes the USDA process, which it plans to do by the end of 2013. Additionally, at the recent board meeting, WCEDC elected officers for the new fiscal year, beginning July 1. Doug Shull will continue as President; Ruth Randleman, Vice-President; Denis Frischmeyer, Treasurer; Steve Bruere, Secretary and, Steve Wilson, County Supervi- sor. WCEDC's entire board roster can be found at www.wcedc.corn. The mission of WCEDC is to create and retain jobs while enhancing the quality of life in Warren County, accomplished foremost by strengthening and support- ing the business dimate in the area. The vision of the Warren County Economic Devel- opment Corporation is to be the economic development organization located in the Greater Des Moines, Iowa metropolitan region that demonstrates leadership, col- laboration and ingenuity to enhance the business cli- mate, business andemployment base, while promoting the unique and identifiable assets of the greater Warren County area, with the purpose of creating wealth and being the model of a results-drive n organization.
