It's likely that the purchase of the multimillion Powerball ticket is the biggest thing to happen in a long time in the northwest Missouri town where the lucky ticket was sold. Missouri Lottery officials said today that someone bought the ticket at a Trex Mart convenience store in Dearborn, a town of about 500 people. It sits about 35 miles north of Kansas City, mostly in Platte County, with a small sliver in Buchanan County.
