Berwick Man Winner Of Largest Cash 5 Jackpot

A Berwick man is the winner of that record Cash 5 jackpot earlier this month. Officials from the Pennsylvania Lottery and Sheetz presented a big commemorative check Tuesday to Luther Coleman Jr., who won the nearly $2.5 million jackpot in the March 8th Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 drawing. The jackpot is the largest in the nearly 27-year history of Cash 5. The winning ticket was purchased at Sheetz on W. Front St. in Berwick where the 63-year-old Coleman is a frequent customer. Coleman says the windfall will help him and his wife move closer to their daughter in western Pennsylvania. Coleman says he used a couple different Pennsylvania Lottery machines to verify his ticket was the winner before he started to believe it was true. Coleman has worked for more than 31 years in mechanical maintenance at the nuclear power plant near Berwick.
