A new millionaire

Published Oct. 6, 2005

Jerry Plummer and his wife, Carol, pose at The Pier in St. Petersburg on Thursday after he won $1-million at a Florida Lottery Grand Prize Drawing. Plummer, 56, of New Smyrna Beach was among seven finalists at the publicity event that drew a crowd of 200 onlookers. How did he feel about it? "Great." He said he would quit his job as a fleet manager, and his wife said she probably would retire from her job at a telephone company.
